Nintendo may not be what it once was back in its heyday, but you have to admit that in an industry where game publishers and developers can be here today and gone tomorrow, the company’s longevity says plenty. To honor their storied legacy, one group uploaded this fast-paced motion design video taking us down Nintendo memory lane.
Aside from the fact that this retrospective is missing any mention of the Game Boy Pocket, Virtual Boy, Game Boy Advance SP, arcade games, and — for the truly pedantic Nintendo fanboy or girl — Hanafuda playing cards, this video truly does have it all. Now we’re just left pining for the halcyon days of the ’80s and ’90s.
