The Evolution of the Video Game Console 1972-Present

When video games first premiered they were played primarily by the younger generation. As the gaming systems evolve adults can and will hog their kids games and many childless adults buy the systems for themselves. Along with lots of games.

The video game creators took notice and have brought out many games that are rated R or M, which means you need to be 17 or older to purchase these type of games. However with the internet and auction sites like Ebay, kids still get these games into their hands.

I just felt like I went to a museum. I didn't know that they made games before the Atari 2600. Well actually I did know about pong. But I do believe cartridge base games came from Atari.

Gametime aka ssjo4 aka ps3 lord should take a look at this. It will notice that every system is basically an improvement over the next. First 20 years was nothing but boasting specs, which was a huge thing in those days.

Maybe if SSJ could see how many systems (and I remind you American made not Japanese)were made before Sony's PS . Maybe He could appreciate what Bill Gates is trying to do.

Golden Axe is a great game I enjoyed it on the SMS, Genesis and in the arcade. Great game but it truly was a quarter eater back in the day. I wish Sega could get the rights to the arcade port of Moonwalker another great arcade game I enjoyed. Collect so many monkeys and become Robo Michael lol.
