4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic read
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars fun but superficial
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I've ever read, and that's saying alot!, 14 Dec. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Joystick Nation (Paperback)
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!
