This enthralling documentary chronicles the fall of the Atari Corporation and investigates one of the biggest mysteries of all time, dubbed ''The Great Video Game Burial of 1983.'' In the early 1980s, Atari supposedly buried nearly a million copies of ''E.T. the Extra Terrestrial'' -- one of the company's biggest commercial failures and often cited as one of the worst games ever released -- in a New Mexican desert landfill. Over time, reports of this strange mass burial became a sort of urban legend. Decades later, a crew attempts to separate fact from fiction by digging up all of the old game cartridges and shedding light on this fascinating mystery.
