History of Video Games: A First-Person Perspective

by Paul Strauss

Here’s a fun video clip that does its best to sum up the history of video games from its earliest roots to present day.

The 4-minute clip was created by a team of game design students in Munich, Germany, and it walks us through many of the highlights of video gaming throughout the years. The clip starts out with 1958’s Tennis for Two (played on oscilloscope), all the way through God of War III on the PlayStation 3.

Granted, they did skip over some pretty major milestones (like Pong, Space Invaders, the Atari 2600 and the entirety of handheld gaming), and God of War III came out after Rock Band – but I do give them credit for their creativity and single-shot video composition skills. Plus, it was just fun to watch all those classic games one more time.
