There were plenty of old school video games based on science fiction movies, but plenty of them were absolutely godawful. We're looking at you, Total Recall for Nintendo and E.T. for Atari.

Less than content with reality, the blog VG Junk has turned to its own imagination to create screenshots from licensed video games that should've existed on 8-bit consoles. Something tells me the Videodrome game would have been terrifically unsettling, what with its "make out with your television" bonus stage and all. You can find more screenshots from these (sadly) fake games here, here, and here.

Man, the Atari E.T. game. I'm so glad I got a look at my friend's copy of that before getting one of my own. It was so god-awful and borderline unplayable. They sold tons of them, it was by far the biggest selling game ever up to that point, but the story goes they had produced so many copies of it that most went unsold and they took a huge loss on it. Rumor is they eventually loaded all the unsold copies of the game in the warehouse into a big truck (trucks?), drove them out to the desert and then just dumped them in a big hole and covered it back up with a backhoe. Nobody knows if this is true or not, but I think it had something to do with trying to hide their losses on it, or something.

Big debacle in every way.
