    Sad that Nintendo sucks now and has not had a real system in decades.



  4. Tom's Ghost on February 11, 2019 at 10:48 pm

    The NES was total Garbage.
    it was the prat’s SegaMS.
    the commodore 64 kicked the NES’s ass.. and the C64 was Crud.

    I love how he has to throw in that the Power Glover "in theory" let you control your games better.

  9. David V on February 11, 2019 at 10:56 pm

    All of the kids shows video games from Nick Jr, Nickelodeon, Lyons Group, Children’s Television Workshop and PBS should all be released on all 70s and 80s Video game consoles.



  10. John Southern on February 11, 2019 at 10:59 pm

    Yet another video where the documentary film makers ignored that everyone moved to Commodore 64s and other home computers. The "Crash" only happened to Console makers and it happened because kids learned they could copy games on floppy disks.



  11. vghchannel on February 11, 2019 at 11:00 pm

    Somehow my parents first bought me the Odyssey2 instead of the 2600 (probably because of the "educational" aspect of having a keyboard). Odyssey2 came out in 1978, not 1982 (see 2:05 in the video… with the Pitfall II music)



  12. David V on February 11, 2019 at 11:02 pm

    There should be all video game consoles and their games being introduced in 1952 and be released in Southeast Asia.

    How many people didn’t realize that they were showing the end dates? Besides, they showed the launch date in the overview of each generation anyway.



  15. BOL on February 11, 2019 at 11:08 pm

    I grew up in the 90’s playing the NES & the SNES, then I grew up in the 2000’s playing the PS2. I still have all 3 of those systems.

    I love this video! You can also visit this article -> http://retroconsole.xyz/history-of-video-games/ It concentrates on early video gaming, and you can read about any specific year from 1971-1987. Soon I am going to take on 1988 🙂



  37. uriituw on February 11, 2019 at 11:30 pm
