  1. I can’t wank this.

    Wow, the early days of video games, the wild, unregulated frontier.

    Thanks Larry, great video.

  2. About video game crash: It was in fact complicated stack of several bubbles.. there was too much hardware especially including home computers what for most part lack of proper softwarowe support. And after rise of third party game developers market was sunk by pore quality games. What worst largest company have new director who didn’t understand industry and make several horrible decisions where overproduction of unpopular game was only pick of ice mountain.. game producers made too much stuff basing calculations on rise of industry boom, when at that point most consumers already own console and future releases were worst not better then previous.. so simply people stop buy those stuff.. until NES what was made by people who know how to make a games.. irony is that third generation wasn’t in fact much stronger then previous one. And we shouldn’t forget about lack of proper press (I mean such where people at least play game until writing review) and internet.. Nintendo Power was more important then people think.

    PS: It is worth to mention that I did play ET on Commodore 64.. yes, it was pirate version but it was..
