Former Atari CEO Bruno Bonnell received 3 million Euros ($4.76 million) for running the company into the ground to leave the company last year. GameDaily reports Bonnell was apparently given the package by Infogrames -- which was a majority shareholder at the time -- without Atari's management receiving a copy of the agreement until two months after the deal was done.

Of course, this is a ghost from Atari's past, not the new incarnation we're slowly getting to know. We just like this story because, frankly, we're jealous. We want $4.76 million for throwing a company into financial ruin ... heck, we'll settle for a $100 bucks and a free round of drinks at the pub.
