Words aren’t really necessary, but I’ll put some here instead. Here’s a look back at decades of games (spotted on IGN Australia) through the magic of metal and hard rock. Made in a week by Jules “FamilyJules7X” Conroy this look back at games by way of electric guitar is magical.

“This medley was begun a week and a day before it was released,” he says on YouTube. “I made this during the same week as my last year of college finals and during hell weeks for numerous other projects rendering me very little possible time to work on it. Still the time restraint gave me One day for arranging, one day for drum programming, one day for doing all of the mixing and mastering and one day to edit this beast of a video.”

Oh, here’s a list of the included songs and their timestamps. Grab your sandwiches, have a cup of coffee and enjoy.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. 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.
