I think I had it. I was too young to remember for sure but I had a lot of games and the screenshots I've seen of the game look very familiar.
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

It was a pretty dumb game.  Had it not been "ET," I would have never have purchased it.

I had that ET game, but it was no Pitfall, and certainly no Decathlon!

Yay!!! Pitfall. I still have my Megadrive, it still works and the pitfall cartridge still works. Time to head up to the loft again ....

I had the Intellivision video game system introduced by Mattel Toys in 1980 that competed with the Atari 2600.  It had far better graphics than Atari.

That Dukes of Hazard game may have been slightly better than the ET game.

I'm a Commodore C64 guy myself.

There some emulators for that out there too.
