Being a woman in game development… in 1983

Being a woman in game development… in 1983

I have stacks of old video game magazines in my office, and it's great to go back and see what people thought of the industry years ago. You can read what people thought was going to happen, while knowing if they were wrong or right. I'm still looking for a few issues to complete my collection of Next Generation, so if anyone has them on hand...

This article about being a woman in gaming from 1983 is absolutely worth reading, even if it's just a scan from an old magazine. Take a look at how things have changed, how they're still the same, and marvel at the wonderful 80s haircuts. This is a great way to get some perspective on the modern industry, and to learn some little-known facts about our past. For example: Centipede was aimed at women?

Anyway, give this a click and a read and let's discuss.
