The Abridged History of Video Games in 3 Minutes

Reverse Enginears produced this A Brief History of Video Games video for polygon.com, and in less than three minutes they took me from my childhood to present day.  All the sounds, music, and video were taken from the games themselves.   Enjoy!  I’m going to play some Street Fighter 2.
