Video game death

Boingboing produced this video montage of deaths in the old school age of video games (Atari and NES/Sega mostly, for you young'uns). Along with the memories, the music is actually what makes it-- it has a serene yet wistful feeling, bringing to mind the monologue at the end of American Beauty as though it had been spoken by a video game character:
Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life... plus the three additional ones I earned in those dungeons on levels 5 and 7.
