Game Over: A classic video game death montage

Now you can relive all of those moments that came right before you pumped the machine full of another stack of quarters.

Boing Boing recently produced this awesome video montage of death scenes from classic video games. I recognize a lot of the games from my days of frequenting Omaha’s Family Fun Center: NARC, After Burner, Magician Lord, Shinobi, and U.N. Squadron, to name a few. Needless to say, this has “nostalgia” written all over it. And the MIDI version of “Mad World”? It’s the icing on the 16-bit cake.
