The Shortcut team invites you to take a trip through gaming history. Our infographic delves beyond the digital age, to the dawn of role playing games. We’ve constructed a timeline that connects the pixilated dots that span six decades in its evolution.

The games begin in 1969 with ARPANET, a forerunner to today’s Internet. Innovation and imagination mark gaming’s history. It extends from Dungeons and Dragons to World of Warcraft and beyond. We recognize flashes along the way where gaming strode ahead of modernization and set a new path.

Readers will recognize where in history their own gaming began. It might have begun with the Pokemon Go craze, or went back to Legend of the Red Dragon. For most of us, there’s a jumping-in point. From there, we can appreciate how gaming has affected our lives, too.
