This fascinating documentary explores the popular urban legend known as 'The Great Video Game Burial of 1983'. As the story goes, the Atari Corporation, faced with an overwhelmingly negative response to their ET video game, disposed of millions of unsold game cartridges by burying them in the small town of Alamogordo, New Mexico. For decades, the myth of Atari and these 'ET' cartridges was whispered about among game fans everywhere. Director Zak Penn and his team head to the landfill where the videogames were supposedly buried to determine whether the story has merit.

Ever since the invention of the computer, man has feared 'the machine' and its ability to think. But a computer's unique computational power has also led to the development of games that are unpredictable, intelligent and malleable. Games like SimCity and Civilization simulate entire worlds and let players experiment with cause and effect. As the 1990s dawned, global turmoil forced gamers to find solace in the world of videogames - a virtual world that offered control at a time when the real world seemed dangerously out of control. Now, videogames have become tools for learning and creative expression.
