On this episode of Retro Game Living Room, I take a comprehensive look at Ralph Baer’s world-changing invention, history’s first video game console, Magnavox Odyssey released in 1972.
The video begins with an unboxing and an examination of the items included with the system.
The video features gameplay footage from the following Odyssey games:
* Table Tennis
* Cat and Mouse
* Simon Says
* Prehistoric Safari
* Shooting Gallery
* Red vs. Blue
* Peacekeeper Command-O
The game Invasion is also unboxed. Packaging for Brain Wave and Interplanetary Voyage are commented on. Expect an Interplanetary Voyage review coming soon!
The video reviews several Odyssey games and the hardware itself. A working demonstration of the light gun/rifle is also included.
The connection between Nintendo and Magnavox Odyssey is explored as the system’s history is discussed.
