Branching Narratives: Jeff Green on '90s PC Gaming Magazines, Getting Older in the Games Industry, and GFW Radio Memories

This week's it the Black Dragon's turn to share his long journey through the games industry.

In Episode 7 of Branching Narratives, it's Jeff Green's turn to be interviewed as he shares how he got into the games industry; thoughts on why GFW Radio was so successful, and his perspective on getting older in the games industry [Download Link Here].

I asked Jeff to do this episode because there's nothing I love more than hearing veteran media types swap stories, and because he was a firsthand witness to a genuinely interesting era in gaming history. He was there as online overtook print; as strategy games and flight sims gave way to shooters, and as the gaming industry went from being the purview of kids and hobbyists to a legitimate pop culture force. If you find any of this as interesting as I do, you're in for a great episode.
