LOL I actually don't consider ET such a bad game. There are much worse on the 2600! What I would like for them to do is do the same thing they did for the Intellivision with the 2600 version of Donkey Kong!
King Kong was one of the carts that came included when I bought my Atari 7800 from a friend. It only has the one screen where you jump over bombs that Kong throws at you. The blue bombs are magic (somehow), which, once you jump over one, it lifts you up to the next platform without having to climb up a ladder to get to the higher level. It's not very fun.
I never played Condor Attack but I heard it sucked, real bad collision detection being the main culprit.
My guess is that each game (in my opinion) is worse than E. T. I've played E. T. and it's not that terrible.

Well, I decided to test these myself with ROMs on emulation. King Kong is such a blatant rip off of Donkey Kong that it has the music and several sounds from DK! I must say, though, they accomplished something the Coleco didn't with their port of DK! Condor Attack is so terrible that it makes ET look like a crown jewel! I don't see ET as a bad game, but given its reputation, it is not deserved when compared to this piece of garbage! LOL
