This is a superb piece of computer history. I love when the presenter asks Trip Hawkins (then of Electronic Arts) if video games are fad. Check it out, it's well worth a look:

I always thought he should have been called 'Tripped' Hawkins.

Oh man, my grammer is so poor . . . obviously in my last but one post, I should have said 'realise' not 'release'. Duh!
