The History of Video Games in 100 Seconds [VIDEO]


Commercial video gaming is a battlefield of consoles, franchises, huge corporations and highly opinionated individuals.

In this motion graphic, we get a 100-second summary of the industry, from its genesis in the arcade games of yore to its current milestone: E3 2011.

And along the way, the video’s creators (that would be creative shop Column Five) get into the console wars, handheld gaming, and of course, Tetris.

If you like this clip — you nerdy gamer, you — you’ll love our ongoing E3 coverage. Check out these gaming-related posts with news from the conference:
