Anthony Bate says: "Despite only being in existence for 30 years, the videogame industry has a rich tapestry. Although it hasn’t permeated the mainstream consciousness to the degree some would like, it can’t be denied that gaming has successfully cemented itself into the journals of history. One quaint departure is the tome labelled “myth and folklore”. Etched in frantic scrawls are the rumours that it is possible to jump over the flagpole in Super Mario Bros, the millions of E.T Atari game cartridges buried in the desert and that Aeris can be revived in Final Fantasy VII. (She can, damn you!)"
