History of Gaming Consoles: Plastic Boxes that Rule the World

“I like video games, but they’re really violent. I’d like to play a video game where you help the people who were shot in all the other games. It’d be called ‘Really Busy Hospital.”
-Demetri Martin (maybe)

You can’t travel a single page on the internet without stumbling upon something gaming related. Whether it is angry kids venting about the new Call of Duty and how it completely sucks, or it is some YouTuber digging up dirt playing Minecraft, they are everywhere. But what if you, like, read books for fun instead? And totally missed this video game “fad”? Well I’ve got your back, because today we are going to be breaking down the (abbreviated) history of gaming consoles (and some fun little side information as well). Instead of having it be some boring list of text, we have pretty pictures!

EDIT: If I messed up any years, or sales numbers, I apologize. I swear I didn’t intend to be stupid.
