From Kataku comes a short but informative write up of the founding and forming of SEGA, originally known as Standard Games. While many hardcore SEGA fans know the history, and it is readily available on Wikipedia, it's nice to read it all in a well written article.
Check out Kotaku's article here and in the comments section, feel free to share your thoughts on SEGA's founding. I'll kick it off with a topic for discussion: SEGA or STGA? SEGA pros: more readable, it's the one we're used to. STGA pros: reminds me of a stegosaurus, dinosaurs are cool.
