So there is some truth the E.T. game story? Amazing! I remember hearing about this in high school and assuming it was just one of the crazy local urban legends.

I love the idea of a "digital archaeologist," by the way. It will be a real career choice in the near future, I'm sure!

I thought this was common knowledge. I had no idea there was an "urban legend" surrounding this. Wild. I've always treated this as fact. I remember the stories and don't know how it went from fact to possible fiction to begin with.
