Title: Chronological gaming series' (Chrontendo and the like)
Post by: azeke on June 25, 2015, 11:42:22 PM
Dr. Sparkle's monumental Chrontendo series (http://chrontendo.blogspot.com/2007/09/episode-1-released.html) seemed like an insanity -- reviewing the entirety of NES library? And later on he starts Chronsega and Chronturbo which does the same for Master System and PC Engine!..

Insanity or not, this series is hours upon hours of videogame related edutainment providing an wide look into history of console often with intermissions that delve into individual creators and events happening at the time to provide context. It gives a comrehensive outlook of complete console libraries with all their masterpieces and shovelware (prepare for some mahjong, golf and baseball games).

I started watching this series a few months ago and yeah, it's great stuff.  I'm not even close to finishing it because damn, it's just so much.  But still, it's great for people to at least try watching since it literally covers everything.

Definitely deserves a lot more attention.

man I went into that expecting it to be NES stuff but nope it covers everything going all the way back to Famicom. Pretty good stuff wish I had more time to sit and watch these videos, but then my work would suffer and I love my job too much to let that happen.

Interesting episode, but it's a shame that episode 50 appears to be a kusoge special...

Lately, i've been watching/listening to Atari Archive -- similar chronological series about all released Atari games:

While i am not as invested in actual games described, history and research behind every video is very interesting.
