Yanked this image from David's website. Super Mario Bros. 2 came out in 1988 and is still, to this day, one of my favorite games (I have it on my Wii). Also: I always play Princess Peach, so this image was perfect in a few ways. Yanked this image from David’s website.

Are you into video games? Or do you maybe think that video games are dangerous because they encourage violence and isolation in players?

David Wolinsky, who’s worked as a writer and editor for outlets you’ve probably never heard of, like The Onion, Adult Swim, and NBC, is working on an oral history series called don’t die about videogames, the people who make them, and the people who play them (or not). I talked with him awhile back about the intersection between video games and mental health—with a heavy emphasis on suicide.

I really enjoyed our conversation, and I think you might, too. Click here to read it.

Volunteer

Live Through This is a labor of love requiring a lot of time and care. I do most of the work myself, but do have a small team of volunteers taking care of tasks I simply don’t have the expertise to handle on my own. I am currently in need of long-term transcriptionists and a dependable social media assistant. As I have no budget, these positions are unpaid. If you are interested, please contact me.

Want to support us?

Live Through This is made possible in part by donations from incredible humans like you.

If the project moves you and you have even a single dollar to spare, please consider donating. Every dollar donated goes straight back into the project. These funds allow for gear, web real estate and hosting, travel associated with the project, professional fees, conference attendance, and more.
