Subject: games meet computing?
I would be very grateful for recommendations of sources for the history
of game-playing in the early decades of computing. I am particularly
interested in histories that look at the confluence of the two rather
than implementation and development of computer games. This confluence
is in a sense utterly obvious -- one form of rule-governed behaviour
meeing a rule-governing machine. But what is *not* so obvious about this
meeting? How did each affect the other?
Thanks very much for any guidance.
