By using digital oral historical sources, Suominen and Sivula study the domestication of Nintendo console gaming in Finland in the late 1980s and the early 1990s. They analyze how the gaming memories are recollected and attached to particular places. According to Suominen and Sivula, the gaming identity is built around homes but on the other hand, the domestic gaming is extended in public and mobile environments.
