Video games used to only take 16-bit graphics to blow our minds.
This great time capsule of a video for a kids-and-parents outlet called Kidsmag! takes us back to 1992, when the Consumer Electronics Show still had a summer show in Chicago. It’s also when the show used to have a lot more video game exhibitors; now most of them focus on gaming-specific trade shows like the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Back then, Nintendo had over an acre and a half of space on the show floor, showcasing hundreds of games produced by its own teams, or more than 70 third-party companies. The company was showing off Super Nintendo titles like Mario Paint, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time, and accessories like the Super Scope, which was a light gun with a scope on top that worked with some games.
