16-Bit Gems" looks back at the storied 16-bit era of video games and examines those that were truly exceptional, but overlooked in the hype of the time. Also, “The Way Games Work” is a series that explores the science and technology behind video games, while making it accessible to the layman... it's like if Bill Nye was on G4. __________________________________________________________
