See The Games In Action
Actual video clips of dozens of games in action, from 1971’s “Computer Space” through the dawn of the NES era, accompanied by fascinating game-by-game historical notes. It’s a “video book” and a celebration of the sights and sounds of video gaming’s history all in one.
This will be the first time you’ve ever been happy to see advertisements. Though some of these have been seen as part of previous commercial compilations on VHS, hundreds of hours have been spent on restoring the sound and video to the best quality possible to these gems of pure ’80s bliss, many of which haven’t been seen in over 25 years.
