What's striking about this quick visual chronicle of the history of video games isn't just how games have become more advanced but how much better our TVs have become.

It's also striking that the personal computer wasn't part of the history of gaming, as recreated by the Munich-based quartet of game design students responsible for this video. Then again, were there really any PC games as significant to gaming history as God of War III?

The video is very well done. More history should be recounted through the first-person perspective, a perspective popularized by video games such as.... was it GoldenEye? Halo?
