...announced today five new titles shipping for the holidays, including three games based on E.T(TM).

Although I have to admit, even three games based on E.T. seems crazy..

I remember playing E.T. in a Sears on the display model back in the 2600 days. The lameness of the game was quickly apparent - hopefully, these folks will do a little better.

It's only repeating history if the three (not five) E.T. games are absolute crap. If they make entertaining games, they could succeed, thus not repeating history
