Know Your Roots: TED-Ed Presents the History of Video Games
Everything you need to know about the golden age of arcades, from Pong to Jumpman.
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. If this doesn’t make you a little nostalgic for a game of Asteroids, I don’t know what will.
