  1. Is that a sound alike of Blue Monday in the middle?

  2. Bruh, why is Blue Monday playing in background?

  3. dunno about you but I spent most of my quarantine playing Red Alert II and THPS xD

  4. now I realized that you are remaking popular songs back from the era and putting them in your videos
    1:20 – Popcorn
    3:37 – Blue Monday

  5. Aaah activision and its adiction to money. Almost ended game industry in 1982… In the year 2020 they have ended Blizzard Entertainment(best firm back in the day) with their money grab perspective and dis-continuing anything they dont quarterly profit from… 1

  6. Blue Monday and Depeche Mode? Nice….😏

  7. ONLY the American console market 'died' in 1983.

    Arcades were still going gangbusters, with Japanese companies like Taito, Namco and Capcom crapping out quality games. Every suburban take-away or 7/11 had a set of arcade machines for plebs to play, ostensibly while they waited for food.

  8. It was too big so it failed it was too profitable. Every one wanted in even dog food companies had games yes seriously. It was inevitable that it would crash get and pac man just put the nail in the coffin but it wasn't the cause just a symptom. . But video games have multiple lives

  9. If we're honest if Apple wouldn't be the sole and Google the dominant plattform for their respective ecosystems both would have collapsed for the same reason. Because people (especially those putting money on something) don't realise that there is always a market for everything, but it can grow and shrink enormously. Even if we can shop online, some will prefer retail, even if we can get all information online, some will prefer it on paper. Even if can entertain ourselves online, some like real interactions.

  10. I try to watch these videos at night but your soothing voice lulls me go sleep so easily.

  11. 4 years later and three incredible skating games released the same year

  12. Thank god for Nintendo..the world wouldn't be as lazy…

  13. Minecraft will live for ever and Skyrim might get released for the 4th time

  14. That "light remix" of Blue Monday slaps like a motherfucker

  15. "What's going to happen to block building games?" this aged finely

  16. At least you acknowledge that the "crash" was just a US thing, the rest of the world was just fine.

  17. amazing storytelling! loved this

  18. so 2020 was the 2nd video game boom huh

  19. 2020: Boomer shooter comeback

  20. AKA:how Nintendo cemented themselves as a titan in the gaming industry.

  21. 4:15 "Was torn apart by corporate greed."
    In other news, water was priven to make things wet.

  22. No one ever really talks about the 5200 and 7800 atari systems.

  23. Hang on…. Your telling me that the same people to make the a10 warthog and the AR-15 made a video game console?

  24. American economists: An American brand sucks at their business, video games are dead. God, imagine the world had we let the US dictate what sells. We'd have nothing but iPhones.

  25. You have the best narrative in the whole of YouTube.

  26. the background track here is SICK!!
    loved every bit of it.

  27. I was 8 in 1983.

    The best ever was when the neighborhood kids went to one house on a Friday night Then on a 30" CRT TV in a massive living room, we all played the best game of that time, Intellivision Baseball!

  28. Wasnt amiga the biggest competitor of atati?

  29. This is a prime example of "too many cooks spoil the broth".

  30. No the truth is video games DID die in 1983. It happened worldwide and Nintendo was the one who saved the video gaming industry.

  31. Thanks god, we have Nintendo to get video games in orbit again

  32. "Video games never die, they just respawn"
    Polybius : I think I'm playing hardcore
