A book good that's good for your soul 25 Aug. 2008
By Wei Kang Tchou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Every wonder what all the hoopla surrounding PS3 (Playstation 3) is all about? Confused what GTA4 (Grand Theft Auto...a game) means but you keep on hearing about it in the news? Wondering what in the world a Wii is and why such creations cause injuries (minor physical accidents)? Ever wonder what happened to all those nerds who kept to themselves from you in high school? Well this book does not cover all of this but it also is not a 'revenge of the nerds' in print form. It does make the argument that you really should pay attention to video games as an emerging medium for the exchange of information....

Lovely read over all, Since the publication date is 2005, some of the games seems a bit passe but (hey I still play Starwars Rebellion V. 2) the argument can certainly be applied to the whole genera of video games. Playing games is way beyond Pac-person and this book will help to bridge a gap in your knowledge...
