Polygon have once again put together a nicely designed online feature, proving that centre alignment is not always best.

Back in the 80s, Atari acquired the gaming rights to E.T. for the costly sum of $25 million.  The game was not well received and ultimately failed to sell.   Atari were left with thousands of unsold copies of the game, which were rumoured to have been buried in the middle of a Mexican desert.
