The Games Underfoot - S4-E5

Trivia: The searching for buried old video game cartridges is based on a true event of Atari burying their failed video game, "E.T." (arguably one of the worst video games ever and leading to the home video game crash). Atari secretly crushed and buried unsold cartridges, which also mistakenly became an urban legend where the idea of the massive burial was regarded only as a myth. In 2013, a company was granted access to the landfill "E.T." was buried in and a documentary was made filming the search and un-burial, also something one of the characters in the episode said he did.
