i liked it at one point they did slighty touch on the real reason (the end of the generation) for the crash but they didnt delve deep enough they should have really saw the trend we see today i loosely call the "console law" where they seem to have about a 6 year life span it was just atari that really went through the ringer being on top and falling so far and hard
do we hear of the demise of the intellivision or colecovision as often?
atari threw the games away because they didnt want them in a bargan bin for
$5 while they were trying to sell new games for $30 they knew their end user was kids but the customer was an adult who often was ignorant
they also touched on the issue of back then you could take a game back to the store for any reason that promply changed in my area during the NES era return only for defective replacement there was a change of it being an toy and becoming software much like records and movies
same with et its not horrible game it just was unworthy of the greatness that the movie was at the time
