A Gaming Retrospective from an Unexpected Source

I was flipping through the channels on the old boob tube this evening when I passed something that caught my eye. It appears that E:60, a sports related newsmagazine program on the ESPN network is doing a history of sports and videogames.

Below is a preview.

I'll be the first to tell you that I am not a big fan of ESPN, but I have watched E:60 in the past and it is a good program that covers the more human interest side of sports rather than the "Durrrr I want more big hits durrrr!" lame ass bullshit that you'll see on a highlight show.

I have set my DVR and I'm curious as to how they approach this. It looks like they've done their homework as Nolan Bushnell appears in the preview, as well as Iron Mike Tyson and a few other random people I've never seen before.

I'm hoping for the best, but ESPN does have a partnership with EA, so it can very well turn into a 60 minute advertisement for EA Sports.

We shall see. The show airs on ESPN on Tuesday, October 15 at 7:00 P.M. EST
