History of Video Games is a webseries featured on the Irate Gamer's YouTube channel and his official webseries. In the series, Chris Bores does an in-depth history of the video game industry from it's beginnings to the modern era. Similar to the main series, Chris would rather pad out the reviews with painful sketches and unfunny gags, probably hoping to distracts viewers from his butchered attempts at "research". Not that it matters,since the episodes are so short and spread so far away that you 'll forget about the series until a new installment comes out (as long as it takes).
