Publisher's Summary

For decades, video games got no respect. They were seen as degenerative, brain-numbing influences that turned kids into couch potatoes. Today, video games influence American culture as much as film and literature do. They have shaped how drone aircraft are operated in war, how ships are steered, and they even influence new medical technology. Video games have become adult, mainstream and integrated into every level of society. Which means that it is probably a good idea for the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to start taking some notes.

"The Pioneers of Video Game Technology Are about to Become the Stuff of History" is from smithsonianmag.com, published on June 30, 2016.
