I'm just shocked that we have 3 copies of the worst game ever made (E.T.). Apparently nobody bought it and most of the carts went to landfill - so how come we have managed to collect 3 !!.

worst game ever?!!
I know it is bad, but surely some of the shovel ware on the PS2 or Wii can take that trophy!!

I don't mind E.T. if I am honest. I purchased one of the copies personally for 99p of egay! About three weeks after that we had a couple donated! ;)

Never played it myself but i'm a sucker for crap games. i.e Pitfighter, Rise of the Robots and the godawful Double Dragon conversion for the C64. Actually scrub DD, it's truely crap on an epic scale.

I just saw some one Egay (as you like to call it) 91 in total.  It includes the legendary E.T. My mate had it too.  I think my favourite game was called Dragon Fire or something like that.

The guy/girl is also selling other retro stuff, including 500 C64 floppy disks. Also based in Leicestershire. It might be worth checking it out.  I would like to buy a disk drive for a c64 & PSU for the computer. I would prefer to buy it from somebody here.  Or swap for Speccy, ST and Amiga software.
