    One more thing that makes me European; before NES I was playing games on Atari 600xl and Mac. (Sips on hot, unsweetened tea) how worldly of me

    also, can somebody please tell me what the song at 4:33 is from ?

    @8:10 lower right. That would be the infamous Jimmy Safechuck. Michael Jackson's favorite pet at the time.

    APOCRYPHAL! The Gameline was produced and sold for the 2600 by CVC, and they never got permission, approval, or even any support from Atari.

    I love that he very unapologetically says “Helllo, GENTLEMEN” because in all reality, does he need to say more? Does it TRULY matter? Hahaahahahahahaha

    Such a great video. Amazing to think this is how online digital downloads started!

    @2:37 "The high cost of the cable company to send you the games"?? We HAD PlayCable in 1982-83. IIRC, it was only about twelve dollars a month to get PlayCable. Hardly a high cost! Also @4:55, while the service may have been introduced in 1980, it only had 15 games on it until late 1982, when it was upped to 20 games per month.

    Certainly an entertaining video and all… but you don't actually know how to smoke a cigar, do you.

    "Game console" not 'games console.' "Twenty six hundred" not "two six hundred."

    I found this video very informative, even without any discussion on how the NES was affected by these services.

    You have nearly 30 k subs and call the VCS the “two, six hundred”?! Serious wanker shit there!

    In USA, 1993, people starter playing games on the Rising IBM PC. King Quest is an example.
    This "video game crash" is such BS.. Atari and Matel crashed, not gaming, even on USA.

    The Gameline cartridge is humongous!

    Other overlooked items I'd like to see covered,
    Cromemco (creators of the 1st PC video card, joystick controller, & commercial PC games).
    Color Gotcha (1st color video game)

    I would have never known MB made a "Frogger" board game, thanks for that. It was one of the funniest/strangest things I've ever seen.
