About Gaming Historian

As advances in technology speed up, things like video games become obsolete more quickly than ever, and it gets harder to keep track of their history, origins, and inspirations. Enter Norman Caruso. Nearly a decade ago, Norman became frustrated trying to find any information on the backstory of some old games, like the companies that made them or the equipment used to play them. So he started digging, and his YouTube channel Gaming Historian was born. Now working with his wife on the channel’s enlightening series of mini-documentaries, Norman has nearly 400K subscribers, adding over 100K of those in 2017 alone. That popularity led him to compile classic Gaming Historian videos, along with a fair amount of never-before-seen content, on his first DVD release this past summer.
