THE VIDEO GAMES GUIDE: FROM PONG TO PLAYSTATION 3, OVER FORTY YEARS OF COMPUTER AND VIDEO GAMES

Matt Fox



 

At last, the video game equivalent of the film guide is here! Six years in the making, The Video Games Guide is a lovingly compiled A to Z bible of the good, the bad and the obscure from over forty years of video gaming. Packed with engaging and insightful reviews, choice nuggets of trivia and displaying a true passion and knowledge of its subject, the guide also includes full-colour screenshots of every five-star rated game. This colour section shows a ‘visual timeline’ of video games, allowing fans to track the wondrous progress of game graphics from 1962’s Spacewar right through to the present day.


Cross-referenced appendices detail the best-known game designers, a full year-by-year listing of consoles and computers, a chronological list of all the games included in the guide and information about major gaming awards, making The Video Games Guide a truly essential reference book for the gaming fan and industry professional alike.


From Pong to PlayStation 3, it is both an archive and a celebration of all the games that have enthralled, challenged and entertained us through the years.
