Never Heard of video games before? Watch the history of games in 4 minutes!

One of the reasons I started writing here was so that some people I know (read: my Mom) could get a better sense of video game culture.  I’ve always believed that understanding a culture means understanding the history of that culture.  The downside is that history is boring.  Luckily this video is not!

It’s a university project from Germany. It’s almost like someone awoke from a time capsule and said, “Where did all these video games come from? How did we get here?”

It fun, short, and I’ll give extra nerd points to anyone who can name all the games (no cheating and scrolling down)
