A Few Events that Shaped the Industry
I had this new assignment for my game history class where I had to choose 5 events that shaped the industry in recent years.
In chronological order, this is what I chose:
2004 – Nintendo Press Release about the first Dual Screen handheld
2006 – First clinic for video game addicts in Europe
2007 – Foundation of Zynga and the pioneer of social network gaming (Now with serious problems due to the shift to mobile gaming)
2012 – Death of 38 Studios and the 100$ Million debt
2013 – Brenda Romero’s resignation from IGDA after GDC party with exotic dancers
