20 Years Ago on AOL.com: Apr. 30, 1999 -- Video Game Sex and Violence; "Entrapment"

April 30, 1999: We led with a shocking expose on video game sex and violence (with an image of Lara Croft, obviously), though I guess our headline was too much--we apparently had to tone it down and give it some context (also note the Mother's Day flowers ad jackpot):

For the PM update, we went with Entrapment. Of course we went with a Catherine Zeta-Jones pic:
[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the AOL.com home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
