    Yeah..... I had no idea that the description had a word limit so what I have done instead is I made a comment (in which I have pinned so it's the first one you see) citing the video credits and info sources. I have never made a large description before so this was a whole new experience for me. Next time I do one of these I'll include the sources and shit at the end of the video in a movie like credit format. Sorry for the confusion.

    Anyway, this video has been in the works for about 2 full months and I am happy to present you all a video that I like to call, “The Rise & Fall of Midway Games”
    I have a soft spot in my heart for Midway, I grew up playing their games and recently I noticed that I never come across this brand anymore. Little did I know that the company that I knew and loved, went out of business nearly 10 years ago. Some of you guys are probably saying how did you not know that? Well the answer is very simple. Even though I am a gamer as well as a collector, I dont & have never followed gaming news (or news in general honestly). I like to be kinda ill informed so I can go into games with as little knowledge as possible and as unbiased as possible... if that makes sense.

    I did cut out about 12 extra minutes of content that I felt just didnt belong in this video, or just me rambling about games. Examples being
    1. Me complaining about midway shitting out sequels to games that were horribly received & or didn't sell well.
    2. Talked about 2 other games in specific that I grew up with... one being good and one being horrific.
    3. Talked more in depth about Midway's Bankruptcy... Got rid of that segment because it was redundant.
    4. Went more in depth about Mortal Kombat Armageddon, Annihilation, and Deception, in reference to how the series was doing in terms of popularity and critical reviews.
    5. More talk about handheld titles and pinball machines that didnt really lead to anything worthwhile.
