Ohio State University Marching Band Pays Tribute to Video Games

Back when I was in Band, We played a lot of John William’s works as well as a bounty of Louie, Louie, and Smoke on the Water.  The Highlight of my marching band career was playing the Hokey Pokey before marching competitions, and marching along to The Indiana Jones theme and the Star Wars Main Title.  So, when I saw this ode to video games by OSU I was blown away!

In this spectacular half time show, OSU pays homage to our favorite video games.  Not all of them are Nintendo, but a good portion are.  Which segment is your favorite?  Can you name all of the games?
