Learning Video Game Lore in Under a Minute

If you haven’t been playing a series from the beginning, sometimes it can be tough to jump into without having a clue what’s going on.  Or even if you have played, you might just want a refresher course. Before I started the third one, I’ll be damned if I could tell you one plot detail of Gears of War other than the fact that the creatures I was fighting were allergic to chainsaws.

Well that’s why this YouTube video series was created. It tackles the lore of a number of games and condenses the entire story into a minute with the help of some animation. Sure, it’s missing a few details, but it will fill you in on the jist of things all the same.

So from Diablo to Fallout to Deus Ex, here’s about fifteen minutes of lore to catch you up on a number of series.
