Atari (although I ascociate them with failure due to a multitude of things), cannot be blamed for it all going wrong. True they made some crap and expected it to sell, ET and Pacman mainly, but if you want to point fingers the breakaway and formation of Activision did just as much if not more harm as it opened the doors for shovelware from anyone who wanted to start a company up. Before this there were releases unfit to be called games but things were going along okay. But Atari are to blame for that happening as they would not pay them a fair percentage of what their games were earning. Everything happened for a reason and got us to where we are now, if the 80s crash didn't happen would we be playing the likes of Zelda and Metroid Prime etc these days?
