    One female gamer I hope you interview is Jessica Goldsmith. I have no clue to who she is except she holds one of the most prestigous classic gaming records out there with her Super Mario Bros. TGTS score. pre 1990 gaming is definitely over 90 percent male so seeing her take would be cool.

    Have not spoken with her since a few weeks after that score was verified. Had tried to get this site to do a story on her, but it never took place, perhaps due to her becoming a new mother around that same time.

    However, the first featured woman does have a huge NES tie-in: http://www.examiner.com/arcade-game-in- ... ame-titles

    Scott, will your next series be about women programmers/game designers? I think that would also be interesting.

    Several were contacted but not allowed to interview while holding such a position. Other than that, however, there's quite a variety in the lineup.

    Well good info to know. Maybe life just got in the way for her.

    Good grief Charlie Brown!!Nobody cares about gender. We are all humans and we all play games. Except the undead. They just smell bad and ruin parties. Chomp little chomp man!!

    Truth in a sentence.PSP, who would they need to contact \"ASAP\" and by when?
    Wow, hope I am not too late to the party. ASAP means as slow as possible, right?Taking gaming where anyone wants it is just the dumbest thing ever. You want to change things? Create something. Create games, create art. Have fun. Don't be dikks. @marcade one to beam up. This time travelling expedition is complete.
