If you care about the history of video games, at all, and would like to hear from one of the founding fathers of the medium (who is, remember, a total badass ), then please, watch this video interview with Ralph Baer.
At times it's fascinating. Inspiring, even. There's one point, though, where I actually teared up.
Baer turned 90 this week. Happy birthday Ralph!
