The Video Game Revolution

Monday, September 06, 2004

It's actually a tv show but they did a pretty good job on the site: "The Video Game Revolution".

About the show:
"The Video Game Revolution examines the evolution and history of the video game industry, from the 1950s through today, the impact of video games on society and culture, and the future of electronic gaming."

The site features four parts: a 'history of gaming' (with interactive timeline!) with also best and worst games according to some notable gamers such as Seamus Blackley and Steven Kent. 'Inside the games' with personal gaming stories(realplayer format) and 'how a game is made'.
'Impact of gaming' has essays on games, even one from Henry Jenkins. It also has a small list with books on video games (like the classic Joystick Nation, and Trigger Happy). The last part is 'The Arcade' where you can take some quizzes and play games.

Yep they sure did their homework right! They were smart enough not to put some boring site up there with just information about the show. They really put an effort in it and make it a site worth going to with lots of information and fun anecdotes. Thumbs up!
