A blast from the Atari Past

I was talking with a friend of mine about classic video games and he brought up E.T. (I date myself by uttering that game) as being one of the ‘worst games ever’. Considering I actually derived some entertainment and PLAYED E.T. and made progress on it I disagreed.

I found one of the most opaque and probably lousy games was the SwordQuest series from Atari. I could not figure out how to do ANYTHING in the game. I mean I ran around and did stuff but progress? Nope. I really liked the comic idea story tied in with the game however the actual game itself really stunk. However, on that note I decided to poke around for the old game and found this site tribute. What a blast from the past. Maybe after a couple of decades I can finally understand how the game was supposed to be played.
