Celebrate the Evolution of Games With Our New Daily Video Series

This Day in Video/articles/usgamers-daily-classics Game History commemorates landmark events each and every day, beginning with the launch of Star Fox 64 in 1997.

Long-time USgamer readers may remember the Daily Classics series, which offered an in-depth look into a different slice of video game history each day. Daily Classics ran the course of its natural life, but you can never keep a great idea down...

...which is why, beginning today, we've launched that series' spiritual descendant: A daily video program called This Day in Video Game History. We'll be posting new episodes every day (yes, every day) on the USGamer YouTube channel. You can watch them here on the site, of course, but why not subscribe and enjoy them directly from the source?

To kick off, today we salute Star Fox 64, which debuted in America 18 years ago today. Tomorrow, we'll be looking at a milestone corporate merger. Friday, a landmark high-score achievement. And so on and so forth, every day. So check out the first episode above, and keep an eye on our YouTube channel for more. Daily!

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
