Because you're not enrolled in a video game developmental course of study.

If we're not molding the next high-profile video game writer, we're sending them off to be America's Next Top Model.....LOL

I like the idea of posting some of the summaries. I'd like to see what some of these nubile minds of Tows got out of these shows. See if any of them have even heard of Pong, lol.

Yeah I watched on on the science channel a while back.. But this was more about the Online gaming generation. It was like 3 hours, and it covered everything from FPS (Counterstrike namely) to MMORPG (WoW)

 

It was really interesting.

 

But yeah I'll probably check this out out tonight.

Pacman!!!

 

Wow they said it would take 9 months to create a "chip". They also said that ATARI brought in 100 million dollars per title! Wow didn't realize that. Thinking back compared to what we have now you wouldn't realize that.

LOL. You guys remember ET on ATARI? They produced so many copies and the game flopped so bad that ATARI took them to a landfill and a controversy ensued. ATARI then covered it with cement and denied dumping the copies.

1980's and Tetris is the game of the decade! Across the globe even. The game equivalent of the song you can't get out of your head. Created by a Russian who signed a contract and couldn't publish it outside of the USSR. But he moved to the US and 5 years later the rights were given back to him.

 

1st episode is now over. I am sure I missed some details because I am at work. Next episode will contain Mario!!!
