As the video game industry ages, the need to discuss game designers and their contri-butions becomes paramount. While there are several ways of looking at and con-textualizing past milestones in the game industry—such as the books in the MIT Press Platform Studies series—Jennifer deWinter and Carly Kocurek’s Influential Video Game Designers series, published by Bloomsbury, is an attempt to move for-ward the conversation between the design-ers and their games over an entire career.
