Discovery explores the evolution of videogames with new series

In an era when technology has pervaded to a great extent into our lives, the need to keep oneself abreast about its developments has certainly increased with time. Keeping this view in mind, Discovery Channel has taken the initiative to dig deeper into the concept of videogames through its new series titled ‘I, Videogame’. The series will be on air from March 1 at 10 pm.

‘I, Videogame’ is a comprehensive and progressive exploration of the past, present and future of videogames and video gamers. Featuring interviews with stalwarts of the gaming industry over the years, the five-part series examines the evolution of the videogame and its cultural impact on the world of entertainment today.

From the early days of Pong to today’s ever-popular Halo 2, from Atari 2600 to Nintendo and PlayStation, ‘I, Videogame’ will narrate the story of the people behind videogames, their ideologies and the technology engaged, and how gaming exploded into a cultural phenomenon.

The first episode highlights the genesis of videogames, and is followed by the episode featuring interviews with Silicon Valley entrepreneur and Electronic Arts Co-Founder Trip Hawkins, Leisure Suit Larry creator Al Lowe, Full Throttle creator Tim Schafer and other notable figures in the gaming industry.

The following episode will showcase the evolution of videogames from 2D to 3D. Among those interviewed are Director and America’s Army Project Originator Colonel Casey Wardynski and Asi Burak, who is the Producer of a computer game simulation of the Israeli-Arab conflict called ‘Peacemaker’. The fourth episode highlights the effectiveness of videogames as tools for learning and creative expression, while the final episode will bring to light the changes that videogames have undergone with the advent of the Internet.
