This week, we grab Diana Goodman for a high-speed detour to explore five ’70s and ’80s movies that had a profound influence on the early years of gaming, helping shape the then-new medium’s aesthetics and defining its direction for decades to come. Then we dig into No Man’s Sky Beyond, rumors of SNES games on Switch, and the games you had to cheat to beat.
Question of the Week: What’s your favorite movie that had a clear influence on the game industry?
