VIDEO: Wii didn’t start the fire - a brief history of video games

What is it with nostalgic video game videos, showing us where we’ve come from and where we're going? If the 4-minute history of video games we told about yesterday didn’t stoke your excitement, you’ll be singing along to this one in no time, we're sure of it.

Based on the Billy Joel song of virtually the same name (see what they did there with the title?), the YouTube video and downloadable song charts the history of the video games industry from its early days to the multi-billion dollar industry that it is today.

We should warn you though, the song’s very addictive, so don’t worry if your mates catch you humming it down the pub later.
