Book Description

1 Feb 2011
From the halcyon days of pixellated, one-dimensional blobs charging around a maze to escape from ghosts, to modern-day fully interative adventures, computer games expert Steve Bowden analyses why these 100 games made the cut to his shortlist. He examines unforgettable classics such as Donkey Kong and Space Invaders as well as modern-day phenomenona such as Grand Theft Auto and Wii Sports - as well as quite a few in between. Be warned, though: only genuine masterpieces have qualified for entry! Whether you are a nostalgic player with a penchant for Atari arcade games or whether you revel in the thrill of the race in Mario Kart, there will be something in this fun and informative book for you!

Just wanted to say that I enjoyed this book so much I've read half of it already (and I only received it in the post earlier today)! Well written, entertaining and an excellent diversion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Needed illustrations 7 July 2014
By Rob - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Sortof fails without illustrations, and seems like over the last few decades there have been far more than just these limited titles that are worth playing, and I felt like some excellent games (far too many to list) had been left off the list.
