Diskette Boy: A PC Gaming History Mashup

Hosted by Polygon, an absolutely extraordinary video manages to portray a (very US-centric) history of PC gaming, in a really stupendous way. Meticulously edited together, Reverse Enginears (you may know them from their exquisite Alice remix) have created an elaborate mashup, crafting its music entirely out of the clips of games it features. It's pretty special. You can see it below.

It's one of a series of videos Reverse Enginears are making for Polygon. You can see another one here.

For a full list of all the games shown, head over to Polygon. And here, let's be ungrateful idiots and mention the games we can't believe weren't in there. Like, where was Darwinia?! And No One Lives Forever?! And, er, World Of Warcraft. (Or Ultima Online or Everquest for that matter.) (Or TF2.)
