Watch the History of Video Games, Soundtracked by the Rap Songs That Sample Them

Sorry, you're not in here Parappa.

We’re sure you remember our Kotaku-approved list of 50 rap songs that sample video games. If not, it basically traced rap’s love affair with the joystick from Sugar Hill Records alumni chilling at the ice arcade to Lil B expressing his love for you over Final Fantasy X. Now, for those who hated all that “reading” and “YouTube pushing” comes a swell supercut video where you can watch video games go from an 8-bit atari teenage riot to the type of PlayStation 2 games Ludacris kept in the ride. Watch us flip it like pinball.
