Video Game History Around The World: An Essay.

Joshua Rogers

Recommended Posts

Video games, in the public domain, have until recently been seen largely as Japanese and American produced products. Is this accurate, and if not, what does a more global history of video games tell us?

Not sure if people will be interested, but it does include parts of my interview with the CEO of Samurai, the company that distributed the NES in India.

I've really enjoyed both articles you have posted so far. 

This one reminded me of the YouTube channel Cloth Map (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCs_6gVNVQOgq6MGDdt3h8HQ). They "explore the world through the lens of games" (the main focus is video games but he does cover other games as well). Basically, they go to a place and talk to developers, store owners, and many other people involved in the local gaming community. So far the places they have visited include Ukraine, Brazil, Cuba, the Balkans, and Mongolia.

So pretty much the whole ZX Spectrum, C64, Amiga etc. scenes are basically irrelevant? 😛 

Yes. C64 and Amiga are American products, but either way in terms of video games for them they are not well known as gaming systems outside of let's say Europe and Australia. Spectrum is a UK obscurity which most people outside of the UK wouldn't know.
