Digitisation Interactive Media

Computer game history

Fascinating archive project from venerable US gaming magazine Computer Gaming World puts archives of issue 1 (1981) through to 1992 online as PDFs. It has obviously been an enormous scanning and digitisation project.

This is a great trip down memory lane and is an insight into not only how games have developed, but also how computer game audiences and advertising has changed, along with criticism and review.

Issue 1 has an amusing piece of the future of gaming – will 16K of memory be enough?

I hope they continue to release back issues for 1992-2006 at a later date.
