Sunday Evening Videos: Colecovision History

Admittedy, your PopCulteer is not exactly up-to-date as a gamer. I resent any controller that doesn’t have joystick. I still haven’t figured out how to watch Twitch. And to be honest, the last video game system I bought was a Colecovision.

That would be nearly forty years ago.

However, at the time, owning one made me a cutting-edge gamer.

Tonight we bring you a few brief histories of the Colecovision gaming system. Some of them contradict each other in places. Some of them are from the UK, so they may seem a bit off to US viewers.

This is a public service, so that when you read about videogames here in PopCult, you can see my immediate frame of reference.
