"Go Right" - This Is Why I Love Video Games
As many of you know video games evolve. But with evolution there is always an origin. This video might not go back to the Pong and Pac-Man days, but goes back to a point where video games evolved. When they left the arcade, knocked on your door because they had no where else to turn and begged for you to house them. They came in unexpected with a modest approach. Not like todays in your face ads and push down the throat gameplay. They simply wanted you to play, have fun, and most importantly go right.
The video above is a nostalgic montage of protagonists of classic video games going right which is something you don’t see as much these days. And probably actually is a turn off for most of the younger players that want Call of Duty and only Call of Duty. What they forget is that this is what it is really all about.
This look at our pixelated heroes of the past really embodies a piece of my youth, a piece of me today, a piece of history, and a piece of memories we shall never forget. For what they did, for what they do, and for what they will do. They are video games. They go right.
