Gaming History 101 | Rockstar Games – Part One

Today we take a look at the history of one of gamings most revered developers, Rockstar Games. From humble beginnings in the music industry to a standard of gaming quality few can match, Rockstar has expanded into eight separate studios and a library of high-scoring and, more importantly, high-quality titles. Welcome, ladies and gents, to Gaming History 101 (Industry, PS2, Retro)

Why is the Gaming History 101 title here?
As the site owner and hard working sole writer of http://gaminghistory101.com I'm curious why your site previously had a retro section called "RetroVania" and now you're using "Gaming History 101" in this one-off piece. I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt and say you're unaware of my site, which I respect.

I would prefer you not use the Gaming History 101 title to your articles, but I have neither the ability nor the right to force this. For the record, this writer and article is not associated with Gaming History 101, its podcast, or anything associated with my site.

Hi Spydersvenom,

Retrovania and Gaming History 101 are two very different feature templates, which a look through previous editions of Retrovania will show you. Retrovania is a retrospective review of game from years gone by, while Gaming History 101 is a factual (and on-going) series focusing on the history of a certain genre, franchise or – in the case of this particular article – a developer. I hope that helps clear up any confusion between the two features.

The 'Gaming History 101' template title is simply a title to clearly differentiate the article from other content on the site, and while it's use is far from set in stone, I feel it sums up the aim of the series and should appeal to both a UK and an international audience. I appreciate your desire to avoid confusion, but I'm sure the users on here are savvy and experienced enough to avoid confusing our feature with your website.

Thanks again for the feedback,

I agree and I should have chosen a private format to handle this manner. My apologies. I acted on initial reaction, which is rarely advised. Additionally the term "Gaming History 101" is neither mine by law nor unique to my site, I knew that when I created it. Thank you for your response, I'm sorry for this distraction on your article.

Dom
