It's kind of weird that video games are old enough to have a history. Here are my meager contributions to the topic:
Closing Time: A Tribute to the Last Calls of Gaming
An incomplete history of video gaming according to random Google newspaper archive searches
Video Games of the Monday Night War
History of Backwards Compatibility
Rumble Feature: Good Riddance
Alternate history: Nine games that could have revived defeated consoles
What if the Super Nintendo CD was Released in 1991?
