This time, RJ teaches Alex all about the Video Game Crash of 1983 (Also known as the Atari Shock). Back during the Golden Age of Gaming, it was the Age of Arcades. Atari was king, Nintendo was struggling to break the U.S, and arcades were popular. With lots of players in the development scene, a crash was looming.

The crash is well known by the ET: The Extra Terrestrial Game, but it didn't cause the crash. RJ talks about the lead up, and the outcome from the crash and what brought up to games consoles today.
