An award-nominated documentary audio series 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 combines context, analysis, interviews, and thoughtful reflection that ties every story back to the present day, because history doesn't just vanish into the distance behind us; it casts a very long shadow that affects everything that comes after it. The things that happened in the games industry 10, 20, 30 years ago all have a lasting legacy — sometimes small, sometimes large — and journalist and historian Richard Moss here tries to draw those through lines in the course of telling fascinating stories about the past.
