Continuing on the subject of Video Games, Edge Magazine has a very cool weekly feature on the "Making of.." various games both current and classic. The articles run the gauntlet (hehe) from design to tech specs and a good bit of history. Some of my favorites so far include:
Little Computer People (Thanks for the heads up Overman!) - A Sim before the Sims ('85) for the Commodore64
Tapper - Hard to believe making video games was as simple as they make it sound here. And who doesnt love a beer themed game.
Gauntlet - The multiplayer co-op Granddaddy
Repton - Never heard of it but an interesting story as its creator was 15 and lasted 2 years before leaving the game business behind to enter college.
Worth a look at thelist to see if one of your favorites is there as well.
