TCW Podcast Episode 119 -The Whole Video Game Industry Part 2

 

We continue our look at the entire video game industry!  In the second part we start looking at the industry leading up to the crash!  We continue the story where part 1 left off.  We see the evolution of the industry along the three lines of arcade, home console, and PC.  We see the pervasive influence of Dungeons and Dragons on the industry.  Particularly the PC scene.  A lot of crazy, and a lot of fun!  Check out the companion video is you want to know how the original recording was!
