Dungeons & Dreamers
A story of how computer games created a global community
Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by Brad King and John Borland
ETC Press
Release Date: March 15, 2014

Like any well-written history book, Dungeons & Dreamers captures your attention from the very beginning. For those of us who are older and remember a time before video games were a major source of entertainment, this book is like going home again. It firmly establishes its roots in tabletop gaming and taking the reader through a step-by-step transformation to the wondrous gaming networks we have today. And if it stopped there, this would still have been a labor of love that justified the long hours spent researching and interviewing. But it’s more than that, it’s an exceptionally detailed accounting of the work of several pioneers in the video gaming industry.

Modern gaming owes much of its entertainment and viability to early roleplaying gamers like Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, who adapted other tabletop games into a more detail rich experience, allowing the player to move about in an unfettered landscape. Many people would come later on that would embrace this concept and take it to the next level. Richard Garriott was one of the first to act upon this, creating a multitude of text based games that eventually led to his massive multiplayer game, Ultima (and its sequels).

Gamer Cave

So you’ve managed to convince the woman of the house that a man cave is one of the essential rooms, only behind the kitchen and the bathroom. She claims the concept is almost as immature as the “No Girls Allowed” sign on your tree house from your elementary school days. I’m happily not one of those women. In fact, I’ll probably help you hang the beer signs!

In addition, I understand. This room is more than just a room. It’s a place where your geekiness can be expressed, where you and your buddies can relax (and drink), and where you can get your gaming on.

For the ultimate “gamer cave,” make sure you have these five essential items…

Atari PongIn honor of Geek Appreciation Month, we here at Geeks of Doom would like to direct your attention to a really cool video compiled by the good folks over at Elder Geek which shows every video game console ever made!

You can watch it below.

This video is a great piece that has not only pictures of every console, but video game music as well from music from 8-bit games all the way up to today’s video game music.

I have to tell you I fell in love with this video, because it is such a great tribute to all the great and not so great consoles of the past and current day. I hope you enjoy this video, which runs about 23 minutes. I saw the first console I ever owned in this video, it was the SEGA Genesis.

Leave a comment here below telling us what your first gaming console was. Did you spot it in this video?
