The History Of The Game Genie
« on: August 06, 2017, 20:41:46 PM »
In the 80s, if you wanted extra lives, the ability to skip levels, to be invincible, or anything that wasn't included in your console's video game... you were out of luck. That all changed in 1990 when Codemasters created the Game Genie, opening the world of console video games to amazing ways to cheat and to an extent, a form of hacking. The Game Genie was important not only for being a groundbreaking device but also for establishing a legal precedent. In this video we'll take a quick look at the Game Genie's various abilities and console versions, how it worked, as well as its fight just to make it to the market.


Going to the final frontier, gaming...
