Oh Bawls,

How I love thee!

One of the most interesting posts I’ve happened across in a while is Popular Culture’s Top 20 Most Influential things to happen to the Video Game Industry.

With just short summaries, the author explains the history of the industry on a global scale – and he makes it simple enough for even the biggest noob to understand. Check it out.  I know you’ll be tempted just to read the 20 headings and click away, but don’t.  It’s a well written piece that brings back a lot of fun memories for anyone who has ever gamed.

There are a lot of things within the Video Game Industry that we take for granted. Whether you like to sit on your couch with a controller playing your Xbox 360, or sitting in a leather computer chair microing your units with a mouse and keyboard, have you ever wondered how we got here? This is the Top 20 Most Influential Things to happen to the Video Game Industry. This is not just limited to games, but covers technology related to gaming, events, business practices of game developers, gaming culture, and everything else that influenced the entire industry. This Top 20 list reflects the entire Video Game Industry as a whole. Whether you’re a casual or hardcore gamer, professional gamer, game designer, or game shop owner you are affected by almost all of these (if not all), even if you’ve never heard of any of these before.

I’m loving the reminder of my favorite college drink: Bawls.

Now that’s what I need to keep me awake at work.
