Description:

The home video game console has progressed a long way since 1972 with the release of the Magnavox odyssey. Now having entered the 8th generation of console gaming, its time to look over our shoulders and see how console gaming has evolved over the years. Enjoy!!!

    Being to control the movement of something on your home tv was an incredible experience in the 70s and early 80s. What I dislike is this idea that after Atari there were no gaming till Nintendo saved everyone. Young gamers simply went from console to home computers where there were even more games with improved graphics and the excuse that we needed a computer for home work…this phrase is used by young PC gamers even today. The Fifth generation was like 2nd generation where there was a flush of different game sessions

    I was a Sega guy until the Dreamcast died. Since then it’s been both Xbox and Sony. No point in having to decide, I just buy what I want.

    Yeah it hurts when I get up, what do expect after 15 years in the military.



  18. TheLazyKey on April 6, 2021 at 5:03 pm

    I definitely think the quality of your videos warrant a much larger viewer-base.



  19. Liam Svanoe on April 6, 2021 at 5:04 pm

    Is anyone else questioning why the picture for the Apple Pippin is actually a 3DO? 7:55 to look for yourself



  20. Southpoint Repointing on April 6, 2021 at 5:05 pm

    Nes original still takes the number 1 spot for me and it’s not about sales



  21. Marco Polo on April 6, 2021 at 5:07 pm

    The 360 didn’t have any of those things until later on except achievements. Not to mention Microsoft stole hardware from Sony and even then they still could not beat them



  22. Spoicy Deemer on April 6, 2021 at 5:07 pm

    we are so close to the 9th gen, honestly cant wait

  32. noob animations on April 6, 2021 at 5:15 pm

    My first console is a Microsoft Xbox 360



  33. Des T on April 6, 2021 at 5:17 pm

    Anyone else remember pong and river raid ( I literally played day and night with friends). I feel sorry for the people that will never experience playing these games for the first time. It was like being in heaven. Some of the other modern games after snes era that changed gaming were FF7( arguably the game that brought rpgs to the west), Super Mario 64 (I was awestruck at the 3d quality), Golden Eye (remeber shooting in the toilets lol) , Gran Turismo, Metal Gear Solid ( probably one of the best games ever made) , Tekken 3 (Heihachi and co were awesome and the fighting in 3d was out of this world), Resident evil 1 (scary and otherworldly), GTA 3 (seeing sandbox type gaming on the PS2 was out of this world experience. I could name more.



  34. Ayoutube user on April 6, 2021 at 5:18 pm

    Love the video!



  35. Des T on April 6, 2021 at 5:18 pm

    I knew it would be awesome when I saw pong and Golden eye in the starting bit.

    My first console was the gameqube and i still have it



  38. Matt on April 6, 2021 at 5:24 pm

    The algorithm really hates this video. The only reason I can get back to it is because I wrote out a link in a google doc.



  39. Peter DeLury on April 6, 2021 at 5:24 pm

    I’ve got my eyes on Apple and Google (Android). They’re currently just mobile gaming but hey, you never know. Competition is healthy.



  40. Jurassic Cinematics on April 6, 2021 at 5:27 pm

    I have an idea for nintendo: the nintendo ultimate. It can play all of the past cartridges it has multiple cartridge slots for multiple console games.
    And it fan be portable or a home console. And it can play dvd and blueray.



  41. Ravishing Rupac on April 6, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    Sega Master System once again just shat on. Too bad that the United States bias still rules like if we don’t know it…its NOT kool. Sega won Genesis kicked ass right? Yeah of course they did



  42. Christian Vang Young adult on April 6, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    Wow! I wanna PlayStation 3!



  43. Matt on April 6, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    This is such an under-appreciated history video. So glad I found it!



  44. Ion-SHIVs on April 6, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    Did anyone actually realize the "crash" was happening back then? As a kid, I had no idea. We were all playing those Atari games through the early 80’s up until the C64 and Nintendo became popular. There was no "down time" where everyone had given up on video games… This video game crash is something I’d never heard of until recently.



  45. Laura Ortiz on April 6, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    My favorite video game console is Classic Nintendo, Atari, Super Nintendo, Xbox, and PS4
