Rather startling the number of major games (especially in the last 7 or 8 years or so) it omits, and pretty terrible music, but an interesting idea. An A for theory, a C for execution.

Nice idea, but leaving out the sound that Q*Bert makes when he dies is inexcusable.

I stopped playing video games around 2:00, so it's interesting to see what i've missed.

Aslo, I think it's awesome.

Rather startling the lack of major criticisms this comment omits, and pretty terrible discussion, but interesting snark nonetheless. A for concept, C for quality.
