This week’s Game Developer Conference largely focuses on what’s next in the gaming world. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t time to look back at what used to be.
For the third consecutive year, GDC is hosting a Videogame History Museum exhibit. For this year’s installment, GDC attendees can look at the evolution of Nintendo, as seen through its early consoles, handheld devices, and games.
In this video report from GDC, we’ll look at some of the oldies-but-goodies that were on display, including the 1985 Nintendo Entertainment System that revitalized a dying game console industry, a Rob Robot store display, the famous Nintendo World Championship gold cartridge, and some of the early toys Nintendo produced before it made video games.
