E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (video game)
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was a cherished family movie about a kindhearted, oddly phallic-shaped alien that became an instant success, thus when the masterminds of Sega decided to create a video game based on the classic movie fans were expecting the best.. what they received would turn out to be what is now viewed as a masterpiece of gaming history.

Long ago, in the magical era of 1982, the world was preparing for the joy of Christmas - having heard rumors of an ET game being released for the Atari system, many were skeptical and felt it would be a horrible, annoying and unfaithful piece of crap: thankfully their fears were soon disproven when the game was released to universal fame and applause as households across the world enjoyed the glory that was ET.

Unfortunately the glory of ET was simply too much for some to bear and many families were forced to return the game to the stores, their mortal minds unable to take the sheer awe and wonder that came from the video game - others would try to preserve the game forever via burying it en masse in landfills, much like how the ancients paid homage to their kings via sealing them in tombs. Most startling of all were reports of several families engaging in an ancient pagan ritual not seen since the days of the Vikings - in which they would set the divine ET cartridge into a fire to watch it burn, seeing it as a great offering to the gods of old. Finally - as a true testament to the game's power and popularity - a copy of ET is said to be taped onto a deep-space satellite so that any passing aliens may gaze upon it and learn of its beauty.
ET continues to inspire people long after it was stopped being produced and many view it as the best video game to ever be produced - although some have criticised the video game for straying a little too far from the original plot of the movie.
