If, like me, you are a child of the 70s and 80s and started your love affair with gaming playing bat and ball games on the atari, then loading from tape on the speccy and now find yourself with a gamecube, xbox or PS2 in your mid 30s then you will love this book! Having said that, its mass appeal makes it an ideal reference point for a whole new generation of gamers too.
Written with obvious passion, this is at once a trip down memory lane, a history lesson and a great source of information on what games you might like when trawling through seemingly never ending titles.
This book is instantly accessible for both the unititiated and the serious gamer - reading it feels almost like having a chat with an old friend!
Several of my friends will find it under their tree this Christmas.....
