Video games in 1994 were awesome.
It is 2014.
I see no gap in this timeline. No industry crash. A constant stream of games that brought with it many gems that have been iterated on to present day (you still play MGS don't you?)
I'll still get excited about a mario game or a zelda game TODAY.
20+ years. golden age. ongoing.
pretty sure I just scientifically proved video games are awesome.
