    I've read about Atari dumping aload of games in a landfill years ago and these guys go and find em. That is if this is real.

    Yep thats real. In a recent issue of PCZONE they're a article about game licences and past ones that could have been good but failed miserably. E.T was one of the games that comes to mind, they also mentioned robocop as well.
    There was a part in the article where they mentioned that atari dumped alot of games in a landfill. I didnt think it was true at first, but seeing that site you linked it must be true. Shocking really :(

    Im assuming this is the ET one? If so, I think the story is real, however the video is not (as you probably guessed)

    I remember playing this game when it came out, it was total carp.

    Fortunately I had only rented it for the weekend.

    its true yer but you cant go and find them as they hired steam rollers to destroy them all for fear of looters.

    edit: just watched the video it seems you can dig them up, I definitely read they crushed them all I dont know if they set it up in the video or its real now.
