Welcome back to another installment of the Forever Bogus Podcast, “Where we’ve got nostalgia on tap.”

On this episode, Bryce and his special guest tackle the history of eSports and the gaming culture surrounding it. First, we get caught up on the progress of Forever Bogus throughout February and what to expect for the following month. Then we jump right into the final episode of a podcast that Bryce started last year that, unfortunately, got cut short called Game On!.

On that special episode, the boys give us a history lesson of the first competitive video game released in the early 60s and how it spawned a phenomenon that continued to grow throughout the 80s, 90s, and boomed throughout the 2000s. In doing so we get a lot of fun insight and factoids about each decade. Afterward, Bryce fills us in on what we will be hearing next month on the Bogus cast.

SPACEWAR!, 1950s hackers, the downfall of 80s console gaming, the rise of PC gaming, and so much more! Press start on this righteous episode of the Bogus cast!
