Intellivision, the first 16-bit videogame system, was introduced in 1980. With realistic graphics and challenging games, Intellivision quickly earned millions of loyal fans.

Thanks to the support of those fans, Intellivision was the only videogame system to survive the 1983 industry crash. Consoles and new games were made until 1990, well into the Nintendo era.

Intellivision means "Intelligent Television"
