The Life & Times of Video Games
Author: The HP Video Game Podcast NetworkSubscribed: 18Played: 174
An award-nominated documentary and narrative-style podcast about video games and the video game industry — as they were in the past — and how they came to be the way they are today.
The Life and Times of Video Games features first-hand accounts from the people who were there — game developers and business leaders like Xbox co-creator Ed Fries, The Tetris Company founder Henk Rogers, former Sega CEO Tom Kalinske, and many others. And it blends these with deep archival research and thoughtful historical analysis from historian and journalist Richard Moss to give you the stories of how the most influential games (and game companies and consoles and so on) were made, how they impacted on the industry, and why they matter.
