The History of Video Games in 100 Seconds [CBS via Mashable]

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Straight from Pong to Tetris, with no mention of Space Invaders? Shurely shome mishtake.

    Why no mention of Panasonic’s 3DO player? It predates the Sony Playstation by at least two years? Everyone that attempts to chronicle video games seems to leave it off the list, WHY?
