Buried “Extra Terrestrial” Game Carts Easter Egg
Northwest of the Ranger Citadel in the Arizona over-world, curious post-apocalyptic parties can uncover a cache of “Extra Terrestrial” Game Carts!
This is no normal loot drop. There are a sum total of 50,000 cartridges in 100 unit stacks hidden away under the desert sands. There are so many, in fact, that it’s pretty much impossible to take them all with you.
Good thing these carts are completely worthless. They have zero value — yep, this is just an awesome Easter egg referencing the rumored burial of unsold Atari E.T. cartridges, symbolic of the massive video game crash in 1983.
Rumors suggested the dump potentially kept hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of extra E.T. carts, but a little over a thousand trashed Atari games, not just E.T., were discovered during the filming of Atari: Game Over.
So that just leaves a few hundred thousand cartridges out there somewhere? Hopefully this garbage isn’t the only thing that survives the apocalypse.
