The oral histories in this collection were conducted as part of the Lemelson Center's Video Game Initiative launched in 2017 to preserve first-hand accounts of the invention, development, marketing, and play of video games. The oral histories capture the interviewees recollections, emotions, and other perspectives often missing from written records. The Video Game Initiative is intended to support scholarly and public history research; public engagement with science, engineering, and innovation; and future exhibitions at the National Museum of American History.
