Leonard Video Game Olympics 2012

My good friend John and myself are currently fighting our way through video game history. Taking place at his house (because he has almost every system we want to play on/game and it is just the location of where we game) and consisting of Atari 2600 all the way to the PlayStation 3.

The greatest part of our competition is being able to play games in system/chronological order is allowing us to see the evolution of the industry. From Dragster to Contra (we've already played around 50 to 60 games).

So far Atari 2600, Intellivision and the NES have been played on. With Intellivision not being counted, because it wasn't functioning right. But played Burgertime and that was an interesting time. (no pun intended)

The scoring has us both neck and neck. I honestly didn't think I was going to fare as well I have, but I barely have a lead and it really goes back and forth. John won more on the 2600, but so far I'm winning the NES round.
