The human race likes – and needs – to play games. That’s probably why video games have been so popular since the very first time of their invention. This documentary shows the history of video games from Atari over to Nintendo and gives insights about the power of arcade games and home-games-consoles.

  1. Terrific write-up. I was looking at this website and that i’m impressed! Very useful details particularly the final portion 🙂 I care for these details a lot. I needed this particular info for some time. Thanks a lot and good luck.

  2. The part about E.T. was false. the confidence level of Atari was the same, but it took programmers 5-7 months to make a game and Howard Scott Warshaw (Yars’ Revenge, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T.) was only given 6 1/2 WEEKS to make E.T.
