1. Oh apparently, I’m an idiot and relied on the little slidy UI thing at top which doesn’t go through all of them. There’s also:
    Jordan Mechner on Prince of Persia
    Peter Molyneux on Populous
    David Braben on Elite
    Toru Iwatani on Pac Man
    Mark Cerny on Marble Madness
    David Crane on Pitfall!
    and Will Wright on Raid on Bungeling Bay.

  2. Excellent! I can’t wait to watch these!

  3. That Marble Madness one is really fascinating, and I’m looking forward to watching all of the others. Thanks for this!

  4. This is on the blue now, as well. Good stuff.

  5. If it wasn’t so hard to feel sorry for John Romero, I would. Poor fella and his pretty, pretty hair sure did peak early.

What Is Gamefilter?

Gamefilter is a community weblog based in spirit and intent on the great work of Matt Haughey and his staff at Metafilter. It's all about sharing links to interesting stuff on the web, but with a narrower focus on gaming-related links -- good stuff that other people might not have already seen -- and talking about them.

Anyone can join for the low low price of zero dollars, and once you're a member, you have the senses-shattering power to post new stuff right from the front end of the site, and talk about that stuff in the comment threads. You don't need an account to read GFi, but as well as giving you The Power To Post, membership also lets you

  • Thank and Favorite all the goodness
  • Build a profile page with all your stuff in one convenient place
  • Send private messages and friend/follow your favorite GFites and their unstoppable Gfiltering style
  • Feel the warm glow of satisfaction in helping grow the community
  • Do all sorts of other neat things, both now and coming in the future!

Gamefilter is part of the growing MefightClub Network of sites, including our forum home, MefightClub itself, FullGlassEmptyClip, our group blog, and Ludic Research Labs, who are a bunch of bastards.

Your genial host is stavrosthewonderchicken, the miraculous poultry who built and administers the MFC Network sites, and a bunch of other web stuff as well. He has a minor addiction to building websites. He loves you all.
