A Brief “Abridged” History of Video Games [ VIDEO ]

I enjoyed this video, but there are definitely a lot of important games and consoles that seemed to be neglected. For example, Sega did create more consoles than just the Genesis/Mega Drive and there’s also no love for SNK, Atari (after the 2600), NEC, Phillips or Panasonic…But then again, no one had love for the Panasonic 3DO

Fun video with a catchy tune nonetheless.

    Seems to be a Brief History of Console Games.

    • FuzzyWulfe

      The first few were arcade games to start. And, after a while, console games surpassed arcade games which are pretty much limited to pinball, retro, fighting, and simulation now. Most people in the US aren’t excited about the release of the newest Initial D or Time Crisis game.

        I meant it missed out on PC entirely.

    Dammit I love video games.

    All the classic Mega Man clips (all both of them) were Mega Man 5. Cool stuff!

    They shot the Duck Hunt dog! Everything else was icing on the cake.
