Nostalgic Trips Down The Video Game Lane…
24 December 2006 | by SnowygoonerSee all my reviews

I stumbled across this fascinating documentary in a supermarket bargain bin -- And I am glad that I did! It charts the history of the video/computer/console game from its humble beginnings to today's online multi-player super games. It is all there from Space Invaders and Defender to Halo and Doom. You will learn how companies like Atari, Nintendo, Activision and Electronic Arts came into existence. Along with the games consoles that fell by the wayside; anyone remember Mattel's Intellivision? You also get a few interviews with some of the pioneers from the early days mixed in with classic game footage. More recent games and game developers are also included.

Tony Hawk, probably to appeal to the younger gamers out there hosts it. Do not let that put you off though! At over two hours long this TV documentary is well worth seeking out.
