Today's Playing Catch-Up, a weekly column that dares to speak to notable video game industry figures about their celebrated pasts and promising futures, speaks to Warren Robinett, developer of 1979 Atari title Adventure and co-founder of the Learning Company.
"There were no computer games when I was a kid," Robinett begins. "There were comic books and science fiction. Kids actually went outdoors and played back then, quaint as it may seem. I have three boys, and I think this is actually a healthy way to spend part of your time."
