Know Video Games? Name All These Consoles!

Think you know about most of the gaming machines in history? Even if you do, you could learn a thing or two from Elliot Hagen of Elder Geek.

Hagen has compiled a 23-minute video detailing every gaming console and computer in history.

"There are over 450 consoles, computers, and dedicated game machines in this video and there were over 1300 individual elements in Sony Vegas that, when combined, formed this awesome video slideshow that you’ll see below," Hagen wrote.

Check out the two-parter embedded below.

Bonus activity: try to name all the video game classic tunes used. (Answers here.)

    There was a lot more single-game systems than I ever knew about.

    I own a Vectrex and a TI-99/4A.

    I've played Atari 2600 and 5200 systems (Space Dungeon was awesome with two people sharing movement and fire duty!). I've played a Magnavox Odyssey2 but don't remember much about it.

    Got an Intellivision sitting a few feet from me right now. Never played it, but sure have been thinking about trying it.

    Makes me miss the various consoles and odd game related things Ive owned over the years and no longer have. Fun times back then, even if games were more "crude" compared to what we have now a days.
