I found a great documentary on the history of video games. A must see for anyone interested in the young people responsible for the technology and marketing of the industry. Catch it here on Google Video.

That was a really interesting video, thanks for posting it cheshkyn.

I was really surprised to hear of Codemasters that long ago. I was expecting to see Atari, Nintendo, etc., but Codemasters, wow.

I find it funny how many parents scorned their children for playing video games as they were always seen as a waste of time. Now video games earn more revenue than the motion picture industry, have a larger audience than prime time television, and are nearly soley responsible for the relentless march forward of both PC and Console hardware/design.

Pretty amazing when you think about it.
