Icons - Season 2

The website Emuparadise just added the downloadable videos for Season 2 of the show Icons that used to air on G4TV from 2002-2006.  Each 30-minute documentary episode focused on a different significant piece of the gaming industry - influential games, software companies, consoles, characters, TV shows, etc. After a while the show started branching off to include other miscellaneous pop culture and then was unceremoniously cancelled (as it probably deserved by that time) - but for a while there the source material was strictly video game related.

I've seen a few episodes of this show and rather enjoyed the ones I watched, so I'm going to check out some more from Season 2. A few of the 22 episodic topics from that season that piqued my curiosity include Atari, Intellivision, Xbox, Arcade, LucasArts, PC Gaming, The Crash, and Naughty Dog. They have Season 1 on there as well. So if it is something you might find interesting go check it out - you can click HERE to go directly to the shows.

[Updated 12/7/2010] Emuparadise just added season 3 of Icons to their inventory as well so there are another 20 episodes for you to check out. Some season 3 titles include Sega Dreamcast, Tetris, Apple II, Mortal Kombat, Donkey Kong, and Game Boy.
