How well do you know your video gaming history? If you need a reminder of how far games have come since the first missile defense simulator came to a radar screen in 1948, look no further as TED-Ed turns its lens on the history of gaming, offering an animated insight on gaming from its primitive origins to the golden age of arcade cabinets.
