the Book of Games volume 1: The Ultimate Guide to PC and Video Games
An amazing compendium of the most important video and PC games and platforms. For the first time there is a one stop hard copy resource for players to review and understand the different electronic games, how they work, why they are popular and a description of the various genres. It is a beautifully illustrated 448 page hardcover coffee-table book that offers exciting and interesting stories about the future of gaming and about the short but fascinating history of video games. The Book of Games delivers explanations of different game genres and hardware platforms, as well as information on current issues, such as the relationship between movies and video gaming, the controversies of video game research, and the battles between the hardware giants. If you are passionate about video gaming this book is for you! You can buy it at Amazon.
Finally a clean book on current games! "..I believe the editorial sections of the book are the most impressive part of it. They have a good grasp on what people are thinking about games, and especially about the future of gaming..." "...With such depth and covering most genres that mainstream gamers play, I will give the editors of Book of Games, Volume One my own prediction. Parents will jump for joy at having a good book at their side this Christmas for the games their kids keep asking them to buy. MMO gamers will buy the book just to read the story on Age of Conan, and their informational editorials..."
