Product Details

Praise

…[A] satisfying, illuminating read. Recommended for hardcore gamers (and ex-gamers) of all ages.—Dominic Al-Badri , Kansai Time Out, Japan

…Big, glossy, comprehensive…a blitz of zippy words and zappy graphics.

Iain Finlayson, The Times Weekend Review

Who can resist a book that opens by tying invention of the video game to development of the atom bomb?

Computer Gaming World

Burnham’s done a splendid job of recreating the cathode-lit dens and arcades of our youth…

Bill Smith, LA Weekly

It’s impossible to praise this book too highly.

Paul Di Filippo, Asimov’s

…[M]akes a crucial point…the ‘golden age’ of video games kick-started an entertainment industry that now rivals Hollywood.

Erik Davis, Bookforum

…this book celebrates…software, programmers, and machines that arose from nothing more than the desire to create the perfect game.

Fin Fahey , New Scientist
