A couple of years ago I posted a video called My Childhood In Four Minutes. It did fairly well on YouTube, getting around 180,000 hits.
One day my YouTube account was hacked by a complete moron who deleted all my videos, including My Childhood In Four Minutes, but not before it caught the eye of Tommy Tallarico, the genius game composer and organiser of the Video Games Live concerts.
Tommy asked me to remaster the video so it could play at half-time during the Video Games Live gigs. I'd been to Video Games Live before and adored it so I was happy to help. This is that remastered video.
For those of you wondering "ah, what the hell is that game?" here's a list. Not counting the title screens at the start the games shown are, in order:
Donkey Kong, Decap Attack, Excitebike, Super Mario All Stars, Bases Loaded 4, Baseball, Hardball 3, Balloon Fight, California Games, Golden Axe, A Boy & His Blob, Kid Icarus, Moonwalker, Killer Instinct, Streets Of Rage 2, Super Metroid, Zelda II, Mortal Kombat 3, Punch Out!, Psycho Fox, Splatterhouse 2, Tetris, Sonic CD, Super Mario RPG, Mortal Kombat, Road Rash 2, Revenge Of Shinobi, Desert Strike, Final Fight, Fire Pro Wrestling X Premium, Double Dragon, Toki, Super Ghouls N Ghosts, Super Adventure Island, Super Mario RPG, Super Hang On, Mega Man 2, Pilotwings, Rainbow Islands, Super Mario Bros 2, Robocop Vs The Terminator, Sonic 3, Stunt Race FX, ToeJam & Earl, Zelda: A Link To The Past, The Terminator, Sonic CD, Super Mario Kart, Chiki Chiki Boys, Comix Zone, Cool Spot, FIFA, Super Ghouls N Ghosts, Kid Chameleon, F-Zero, Alex Kidd In Miracle World, Aladdin, Bonanza Bros, Castlevania, Contra 3, Donkey Kong Country, ISS, RC Pro-Am, Night Trap, Afterburner 2, Dick Tracy, Joe & Mac, Mickey Mania, Ristar, Starwing, Toki, Super Off Road, Super Star Wars, Prince Of Persia, Super Mario Bros, Sonic 2, Ecco, James Pond 2: Robocod, Super Mario Bros 3, Sensible Soccer, Street Fighter II Turbo, Earthworm Jim 2, Super Punchout!, Castle Of Illusion, Gunsmoke, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Yoshi's Island, Super Marioland, Gunstar Heroes, The Legend Of Zelda, Strider, Donkey Kong Jr, Zombeis Ate My Neighbours, Zool, Rocket Knight Adventures, Sonic & Knuckles, Kirby's Adventure, Marble Madness, Bubble Bobble, Digger T Rock, DuckTales, King Of The Monsters, Smash TV, Joe Montana's Sports Talk Football, Battletoads, The Immortal, Jurassic Park, Bart's Nightmare, Alien 3, Chuck Rock, Aero The Acrobat, Metroid, Primal Rage, Goonies II, Sunset Riders, Bubsy The Bobcat, Super Mario World.

This is the definitive collection of my favourite 8-bit and 16-bit games ever, and I'm dedicating it to the members of the ONM forums at www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk becuase they help make my job so rewarding. Cheers troops.
