Tor Thorsen, Atari founder: Modern games ‘unadulterated trash’

Tor writes: Nolan Bushnell, the founder and onetime head of said pizzeria/video game parlor franchise and the once-mighty publisher/console-maker Atari has issued a scathing statement about the current state of games….

Despite his blanket statement, Bushnell’s most recent venture has games at its very center. Some 31 years after he sold Atari to Warner Bros.–which went on to make billions on the 2600 home console–the serial entrepreneur has founded uWink, a restaurant where each dining table is equipped with touch screens offering a host of causal and “social” games.
