This rather incredible montage, put together by the chaps at Reverse Enginears for Polygon, managed to slip by us in the deluge of E3 stuff.

It shows the history of video games – told entirely using video games – condensed in to a 2 and a half minute clip. It’s pretty much like  a gamer’s life flashing before his eyes. sure, there’s a chance your favourite game is missing – but if you even remotely like video games, you have  to watch this. It’s magical.

It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
