I enjoyed reading this book; it was like a trip through memory lane. The authors start with the pre-Pong days and go all the way up to modern consoles and online games. It took me almost a week to get through it; each page of this full-color book is crammed with articles on various products and quotes from industry insiders. I read about a lot of things from childhood that I had all but forgotten. Definitely a good read if you're interested in knowing the roots of modern electronic gaming. ( )

If you like videogames, buy this book. Period.
It's a full-color romp through the history of gaming from 'Space War' to 'Lara Croft'.
DeMaria doesn't just dwell on the games, however; he also profiles the people and companies who made them. This is a comprehensive, scholary, but very, very fun history of a modern obsession.
And it was great to see pictures not only of games that were my old favorites, but many of the people I knew in the game publishing industry from my computer magazine days. ( )
