Tonight at 8PM on the Discovery Channel, World of Wonder’s well-reviewed five-part series, Rise of the Video Game, airs Level Four, exploring the “God games” of the ’90s, like SimCity and Civilization, which simulated entire worlds and let players experiment with cause and effect. Rock, Paper, Shotgun says: “Rise of the Video Game demonstrates a depth of research and work that lifts it above the usually banal, patronizing rubbish that television normally produces on the subject. It interviews all the right people, knows to show clips of all the right games, and makes the assumption that you’ve already a basic knowledge of the subject.” Check it out. Tonight. 8PM. Discovery.
