The Video Game Newsroom Time Machine is a weekly retro gaming podcast in which we travel back in time to see what was making headlines 40, 30, and 20 years ago in the arcade, video game, and computer gaming business and interview industry veterans. 

We try to put those events into historical context to understand how the industry of today came to be. 

It's fun and educational! (in case you need to justify listening to it to a significant other)

100 episodes, a milestone most podcasts never reach.

To celebrate the 100th episode of the Video Game Newsroom Time Machine, we have assembled the entire team, Karl, Peter, Mads, Jon, and Ethan for a 7 Minutes in Heaven spectacular! Each of us has had to pick a game for another member of the team to play for 7 minutes. The only rules, the games have to be at least 20 years old, have not been played on a previous 7 Minutes in Heaven segment, and the player can not have previously played the games!

So, celebrate with us as we tackle some timeless (and some forgotten by time) classic titles!
