A Brief History of Video Games

A three minute short and brief, yet original video game history timeline movie clip has been created for Polygon by Reverse Enginears featuring P Sus.

Its zest and originality is that the clip is made using only sounds, music and video from the games themselves. The video features short mentions of games like Street Fighter, Pacman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mortal Kombat, Guitar Hero, Super Mario (of course!) and many others. It fails, however, to mention such famous and epic video games as: Doom, Quake, Age of Empires and Rome: Total War.

Reverse Enginears is a digital creative agency that specializes in A/V re-sequencing. AKA “remixes.” Their remixes have been featured in advertising campaigns for Disney, Marvel and GM, and have been watched millions of times on YouTube and elsewhere.
