Geeks like me and about my age already know some aspect of this story. I was always more a techie than a gamer, but I lost many nights/days/weeks to the Apogee games which start this story up until Doom. I can't imagine this story makes any sense to someone that isn't from that world, but if you are, and care to know more about how these games came to be and the people involved this is a worthwhile read.

"The Soul of a New Machine" by Kidder is the classic (original?) computer startup story, a fantastic read. Of course times change and patterns repeat, so maybe this is the modern version of that book.
