DailyDirt: Old Video Games Live On...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The first video games you could play at home were introduced in the late 1970s, and these games got really popular until the early-80s when the game market slumped. Fortunately, video game consoles took off again with the introduction of the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985, and we've all seen how popular video games are nowadays. Here are just a few links on remembering those old 8-bit/16-bit games that kids today might not even recognize. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.
