The History of PC Gaming
The PC Computer Game industry has a colorful (and sometimes not so colorful) past. Beginning with interactive text adventures (the not so colorful part of gaming history), early gaming relied as much on the player's imagination as the designer's. As games became more complex, so did their graphical sophistication, and general market appeal. Nevertheless, it wasn't until the relatively recent phenomenon of cheap PCs, and high capacity CD-ROM media that computer gaming went "main stream."
