Video games have meant something different to every generation that has experienced them. Something that was once thought of as a mere novelty, or childhood fancy, has become as much a part of the cultural fabric as film, music, or literature.

In A Link to the Past: Stories of Growing Up Gamer, Brian Davis explores what it meant coming of age when that shift started happening; where video games went from something young people were expected to grow out of, to being a centrally crucial pillar of development to an entire generation. Starting in the jungles of Atari’s Pitfall, and weaving a path through Skyrim’s sprawling, majestic landscape, A Link to the Past follows the journey of one young Midwesterner’s search for identity, no matter the super villains, glitches, or threats of social alienation that stood in the way.
