Youtube Video Description:

The first entry in a two-part look back at the most important game of Nintendo's early days, Donkey Kong. This half of the retrospective focuses on the design of the game and why it stood out from its arcade peers to become such a phenomenon. I realize there's an error in the script (re: Space War), but I was unable to go back and correct it because I currently have a nasty cold and thus no voice. I'm just glad I recorded the voiceover for this before I fell ill.
