For a long while E.T. was generally considered to be the worst game of all time. Developed in just five weeks to meet a Christmas release deadline, it was blamed for kicking Atari to its knees. However, the documentary makes a fair stab at arguing against this perceived wisdom - suggesting that there were far worse games than E.T., both before and since.
Unfortunately, Atari - in whatever weird form it exists today - seems determined to be known for publishing The Worst Game of All Time.
We don't quite understand why the original Rollercoaster Tycoon - released in 1999 - never got more stick for being a shameless rip-off of 1994's Theme Park. However, there's no denying that it was a much-loved, if shamelessly unoriginal, franchise.
Now Atari is returning the brand to the PC, with Rollercoaster Tycoon World. Here's their slightly boring enthuse-o-guff, which you're probably just going to skip, and we don't even care:
"The beloved and fan-favourite RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise soars to new heights with RollerCoaster Tycoon World! RCTW is packed with all the fun-filled features fans know and love, plus brand-new innovations including an intuitive 3D track builder, deformable terrain, realistic coaster physics, and the ability to share your park creations.
"Players can also team-up with friends from around the globe to form a theme park company and compete with others worldwide. Experience the ride of your life as you customize incredible coasters, entertain your park guests, create stomach-churning corkscrews and become the world's next RollerCoaster Tycoon."
That all sounds exciting doesn't it? Unfortunately, a teaser for Atari's RollerCoaster Tycoon World suggest it's going to resemble a terrible, mid-90s PC game. Frankly, it looks about as visually appealing filling a trombone full of meat and roe, and blowing it in the face of a fat drunk.
Maybe that's deliberate. Maybe it isn't. It isn't entirely fair to pre-judge a game on unfinished footage, but it does beggar belief that they'd think this was good enough to release publicly:
