this is a good article from yahoo about movies as atari games in the early 80s


from Marcus Errico Deputy Editor, Yahoo Entertainment June 26, 2015:


Back in the early '80s, everyone had an Atari 2600 jacked into their TV sets, launching a feeding frenzy among game developers, who looked to Hollywood for source material. They figured a hit movie would equal a hit video game. Boy, were they wrong. But it sure is fun to look back at which games actually worked and which games were 'Porky's.'
