Yeah GRAN TURISMO was in it!! I adore that series.

But that was the worst 200`s song I think I`ve ever heard.

the 3DO looks pretty good compared to the others that came out with it and that alien vs predator for the Atari jaguar looks awesome;)

The telstar was in production from 76-78.The 1292 was released in 78. The cannel f in 76. RCA and Atari VCS in 77 (renamed to 2600 in 82). I got my first game console christmas 77 (but can`t remember specifically what one), and it was replaced with a RCA studio II in 80 (doh) closely followed by an atari.

Is it just me or did this just confirm that music has got progressively worse over the years?

There were no video games in the 70s, all those first ones came from the 80s I know I was there.

There`s a few missing in the list. Commodore released one just before they went belly up based on the Amiga 1200 hardware called the CD32 which was a 32 bit platform which was actually pretty good. It wasn`t on the market long though.

Wooo, I had a CD-I!
It really, really sucked though...
That game they showed with the Philips CD-I is Link: The Faces of Evil.
Nintendo were gonna get help from Philips make a CD console, but they broke up. They gave them permission to make some games based on their Nintendo characters. There was a Mario Hotel one (a good one for kids I suppose) and two Legend of Zelda games, one called Link The Faces of Evil where you played as Link saving Zelda and Zelda Wand of Gamelon where you play as Zelda saving Link. They`re both terrible and have had hilarious Youtube Poops made with content from the game.

Remember starting on the C64, then Nintendo was my company of choice.

Born to game.

I`m old school too maddog, my history goes way back. Atari2600, Spectrum, Atari ST, then numerous nintentoes, segas and sonys leading up to the X360, my current squeeze.

And I`ve been playing Spore all day today on my PC, which rocks the Kasbah by the way- we`ve come a long way since Jet Set Willy.

I`ve seen a few video game history compilations, and "Kaja productions" doesn`t exactly do an outstanding job...but considering this is something a kid probably made as a school presentation, not bad.

"just imagine what we will be telling our kids what we had in 10 years.."

I`d imagine I`d tell them about the games now... Not too hard to imagine.

The no gameplay available thing is very very disturbing... Who dots their eyes with a hippie sign.
You spin me right round... that song, i hate it... gets catchy too quickly.

I had the NES. Anyone remember Paperboy?

.... Come on everybody... ride the train.. I prefer Uncle Luke`s Hydrolics version.

SNES... DO BARREL ROLL!
Gran Turismo 2... I remember that

Sega Dreamcast.... I remember the Fight game.

PS2!!! The first console to be the same price as season tickets.

Can someone explain why the old game system look bad. As far as the console itself..
