Here are TheOldestOnesInTheBook for VideoGames, from before UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfVideoGames to the UsefulNotes/TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983. The US introduction of the UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem in October 1985 marked the beginning of the beginning of the [[UsefulNotes/The8BitEraOfConsoleVideoGames Third Generation of consoles]].[[note]]We have chosen it as a cutoff date for TheOldestOnesInTheBook of VideoGameTropes. Mainly because the crash is kinda hard to precisely date, thus making an exact cut-off hard to calculate. Also there are a few major 1983 games that get labeled as "Oldest Ones In The (Video Game) Book", most notably ''Dragon's Lair.''[[/note]]
