    I can't figure out what the song in the video is. I know its bit tune of something recent but I just can't place my finger on it.

        "Mad World" is a Tears For Fears song, covered by…Gary Jules and others

      • Angel

        Tears for Fears was the first to perform this song and the album was released in 1982. Written by Roland Orzabal and sung by bassist Curt Smith.

  • wahoooo

    The music sounds like a funky elctro remix of mad world. Also, boobs.

    • xXbeermonkeyXx

      call me old timer, but thats a midi version of the song, very fitting considering all the games used that sound technology.

  • Dave

    Sweet version of that song…took me forever to figure out what it was

  • Ryan

    Its Mad World by Gary Jules

    • Josh Gorter

      • Lights0ff

    0:54 has to be the best……always love Out Run. What better way to go than be thrown out of the car at over 200kmh.

  • Carl

    Great video, loved seeing Defender, Galaga and Afterburner… Disappointed that there was no Super Mario Bros or Donkey Kong… What were they thinking??

    • Birdhaus32

      Or Final Fantasy…

  • Birdhaus32

    That just brought a tear to my eyeball. sniff sniff

  • dUtch

    im going nuts but what was the game with the gorgon shoving its tail into the warrior's face?? i know that guy had enumerated them but i didnt count much like everyone else

  • wkdfrog

    Operation Wolf, Golden Axe & Ghost n Goblins FTW. Honourable mention to Barbarian for the decapitating move – 1st game to ever do that I believe….

  • BaJezzus

    I call bullshit. No Mario deaths or Legend of Zelda?!? come on.

    awesome video though, really took me back to my younger years. Out Run death is the best by far. lol

    • BaJezzus

      upon further review….Nor any Castlevania?!? Double bullshit. lol

      Still an awesome video though. nice audio as well.

      • DistractedIndividual

        I didn't see Jump Man in there, anyone else remember that game?
