Video games are history

A Most Agreeable Pastime

Vic20panelAs a group – that is thirty something people that play games – we are pretty lucky.  Having practically grown up alongside the medium, we witnessed first hand the ups and downs and trials and tribulations the industry has gone through pretty much from its beginnings to its relatively recent explosion into mainstream popularity.  From when primal chaos reigned, to when the Stone Monkey emerged.  It was irrepressible!  I take it for granted, but the fact that my earliest video gaming memories were playing Raid on Fort Knox, Gorf and Jupiter Lander on the VIC-20 is actually pretty incredible.  And it is through these collective memories that we, for all intents and purposes, are the primary sources for what will most likely be considered most important period in the games industry’s history.

It may surprise you to know that I actually don’t read a lot about video games…
