Visit here frequently for comparison media, screen shots and audio samples for the games the video game market has passed by. Console History compares popular journalist written histories such as 'Game Over' and 'The Ultimate History of Video Games' with game journalism from the time and newer interviews available online.
To comment, or request a comparison or an old segment be revisited, check out the Forums link and choose which forum suits your interests. You may also send an e-mail, but priority will always be placed to those gamers who actually take part in discussion on the topic. Otherwise keep an eye on the Updates page for what has been recently uploaded. Gamepilgrimage is only as thorough as conversation between gamers, and stands as a challenge to journalists and executives who write history exclusively from the perspective of sales.

Sorry for the delay folks, not that an "archive" site like GP even cares about down time. "Why were you down GP?" one probably would not ask. Two local computers failed, but fortunately none of the drives failed except one, which was not a storage disk. GP also had to change hosting plans, which disconnected the website until now.
The grand experiment is over! "What experiment?" you might say, should you care to read and ponder? Are popular online "communities" known as forums treasure troves of solid information? Does pouring historical and technical facts into one or all of these popular communities result in more technical or historical discussion of the Video Game Industry? That answer is a resounding ... sometimes but very rarely. Instead forums, as originally suspected, are argument factories first, outlets for unfounded opinion posting second, and places to vent all around.
