I started doing research on this video a year ago, and heavy research starting in March 2016. Writing and editing start a few months ago. I know it's long – but I hope you enjoy regardless. I put in a lot of work!

I remember the Nintendo entertainment system
This was a very informative video but it seemed a little rushed.
There was no mention about Popeye. Originally when Shigeru Miyamoto was told to design a game that would appeal to America, he researched American interests and decided to make a Popeye arcade game. But Nintendo couldn't get the rights to use the popeye character on time so Bluto was changed into Donkey Kong, and Popeye was changed into jumpman. Jumpmans name was later changed to Mario.
This video is underrated Can someone tell me what Program did he use to make that kind of video
"This is shit" child 1984
Wow, he had a stroke at 21… 2:02 he looked pretty old for 21 too. :p
great video, nice flow and tons of info! awesome selection of background music too
Good video, man! Really liking the music choices here. Anybody that uses Mouryou Senki Madara OST in their videos has my respect.
Positively outstanding work. Thank you for putting this together so masterfully.
Why does he say Yama-oochee? Isn't it Yahm-OW-chee?
I miss the badass Nintendo, now they sell a glorified tablet and can’t decide if it wants to be a home system or a portable system.
That's so ironic that Apple was once used as an argument for open source anything.
19:49 NES footage should not feature a SNES.
Thanks for sharing this fascinating history about the NES. I have one for my very own (NES version UK) along with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (used to be known in the UK as Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles) and TMNT II: The Arcade Game (used to be known in the UK as TMHT II: The Arcade Game).
Jesus dude, this was really fucking good
I'm not lying when I say this is the best video I've ever seen on YouTube. I just watched it three times in a row. You deserve a lot more recognition.
Very cool video! Like so good! Amazing job man! This was informative and invoked nostalgia which is what I thrive on.
best youtuber!!! 40 mis went so fast
31:50 – This guys story should be an episode unto itself..
Well, damn. Yamauchi is a man of conviction, I tell you that! 🙂
Does anybody know what game is being featured at 24:52 of the video? It kind of looks like a Predator kind of character, but the NES game Predator used Arnold as the character that is used to play the game with, so I am wondering what game this might be. Anybody know???
Nintendo rules as innovator, my first console was the NES but damn those cartridges were expensive. I had two original games, all in all Super Mario Bros which was bundled with the console and Bionic Commando
Great job, awesome video. Way to keep me engaged, even during the what would usually be the boring stuff. Lol
Great video. Well researched and edited. Thanks very much.
Why Didn't Nintendo get involved with ZTE or Samsung 1986 becase those we experianced trading company who could have helped with distribution and manufacturing.
You worked really hard to make this wow
Did you read David Sheff's 'Game Over' for the source material for this video?
Nice documentary dood!
Wow all the games of my youth, my how the times have changed.
One question? What the he*#! were the american developers doing? Did they all really go bankrupt aside from Aklaim or Activision? Watching this its evident that not only did Japan enter the video game industry, they were the video game industry after the American crash. It's sad there weren't any American equivalents to the brilliance of Capcom, Kanomi, Nintendo's departments, Enix, Squaresoft…on and on and on and on. Was it all about home computers for American developers?
The quality of this video is huge, it should have more views.
Brilliant Video, very high quality and not the usual tit bits of information; some really juicy snipets of stuff i havent heard before on other gaming channels
i did not know there was so much nintendo back story
This is one of the very best Nintendo history video's I've watched, not only on YouTube but the whole of the internet period.
Great work keep it up. I would love some more of these Chronicles of gaming video's on other companies and consoles.
Hi. There should be a history how the bad box artwork of Megaman came to be:-) God bless, Merry Christmas, happy new year. Matthew 16:18
Excellent work on this !
Finally someone mentioned the fact that the NES was succesful in France and Scandinavia. So many other YouTubers ignore that fact and say NES totally failed in Europe. As someone who grew up during that time in Sweden, it's a bit frustrating how people seem to forget other countries exist in Europe. Here, SEGA did alright with Master System, although far from a massive hit, while NES on the other hand was pretty huge over here!
Atari and Nintendo, forever fighters!
great vid must have taken an eternity to compile
There is a mistake in the video: Mattel also released NES in Italy
You forgot something at 1980 the game&watch
So literally Yamauchi said to Yokoi "i order you to create some thing great" LMAO!!!
Great content, but a bad documentary. The narrator and editing seems to be in cocaine. There are no breaks or breaths.
Sony playstation 2 kicked Nintendos cube ass, then Nintendo gets a win with the Wiionly to fail with U as casual video entertainment moves to smartphones, now Nintendo is still pig headed, in trying to control the video game market. – good video about Nintendo game history
40 minutes of professional, high quality content, and only 10k views?!?!? Dave I appreciate you so much man please don't stop doing what your doing. It has been a pleasure being your subscriber.
