Atari: Game Over: The documentary about the ET (and others) landfill find.

I just watched both parts of it and it's very good!

Atari sure had a lot of extra unwanted inventory. I remember around 2004, a pile of Jaguar and Lynx games and accessories trying to be sold in shops. Was it £60 for a Jaguar with game...? I was tempted at the time but just not quite enough to drop £60 for it.

Bought the Lynx new in the box with a whole bunch of games for a bargain, but I have to say... it was totally rubbish. Overrated big time. Worst handheld system I ever got my hands on. Sorry.

Really? I would have to disagree with that.

I found my Lynx games just recently that I gave a loan of to my brother to about 10 years ago and I've been playing A.P.B. on it a good bit. Granted, the screen isn't too great looking this days, but some of the games were pretty good and always better than that Speccy like GameBoy!
