How Classic Games Work
If you’re anything like my younger brother, you probably liked to take things apart to see what made them tick. HowStuffWorks.com is a site that details the inner-workings of many interesting things.
They also have a section devoted to games and other fun stuff. Take a little time to browse and you might just learn how some of your favorite console work. Feel free to check out the rest of the site for interesting non-gaming things.
