Excellently written with a personable style, a history of the video games written in the late 90's (Playstation had just come out!!) I loved the predictions for the future (no one is going to download games or use a console for social gaming). but all together a very enjoyable read.

Delivered very promptly.

herz is a cool writer but this felt too much like a bunch of journalism to me, no real insights. trigger happy by stephen poole is way better, IMHO the first really serious analysis of games anyones written.

Herz has got a winner here. I love video games and this book teaches every thing there is to know about the evolution of video games. Great book for the average game junkie. I feel a deep empathy towards her, I love the classics, I miss the classics. Great book!

Joystick Nation is a great book, simple as that. Anybody who has ever stayed up into the wee small hours trying to get to the next level should read this NOW!
