A follow up to 2007's Classic Home Video Games, 1972-1984, this reference work features write-ups for EVERY U.S.-released game for the Nintendo NES, the Atari 7800, and the Sega Master System. (The 1985-1988 on the cover refers to console era--every game for each system is fully covered.)
Organized alphabetically by console brand, each chapter includes a description of the game system followed by write-ups for every original game released for that console. Video game entries include publisher/developer data, release year, gameplay information, and, typically, the author's critique. A glossary provides a helpful guide to the classic video game genres and terms referenced throughout the work, and a preface provides a comparison between the modern gaming industry and the industry of the late 1980s.
