Pixels On Parade: A Visual History Of Video Game References In Movies

Does the Internet really need a 21-minute supercut? Of course it does.

Highlights here in this sprawling, 21-minute (!!!) history of video games from the reel world include a gaming-as-addiction montage (:38 seconds), a Pong tutorial from Jeff Bridges and Harry Dean Stanton (2:03), a three-part tribute to Michael J. Fox (8:57), and a series of digital dance offs (10:29)!
