I wanted to congratulate you on yoru videos, they are pretty cool, and I will be looking forward to acquire your book as well. Videogame history needs to be preserved and I am happy people are looking into this. Did you see that videogame museum in upstate New York? It's open for researchers and it's got a shit load of material that could be helpful to you!
I just watched the Oregon Trail video... that's a game famous only to american people, for I have never heard of it until last July when me and my girlfriend found a stray iMac G3 in front of our house and when we took it home all she wanted to play was Oregon Trail and she taught me about it and how everyone knows this game up there. It was fun to play, for sure the most entertaining educational game I ever played!
Keep up the great work!
