Examine the past, present and future of the fastest-growing form of entertainment in history, one that brings in billions more dollars each year than the movies. More than half of America plays games regularly, and the average gamer is now thirty years old. Yet Americans who don't play games hardly know they exist. This program features interviews with most of the important designers of games today, including the guys and gals who invented The Sims, Civilization, Dungeon Siege, Pong, Ratchet & Clank, Donkey Kong, Nancy Drew and many others.
