From the halcyon days of pixellated, one-dimensional blobs charging around a maze to escape from ghosts, to modern-day fully interative adventures, computer games expert Steve Bowden analyses why these 100 games made the cut to his shortlist.
He examines unforgettable classics such as Donkey Kong and Space Invaders as well as modern-day phenomenona such as Grand Theft Auto and Wii Sports - as well as quite a few in between.
Be warned, though: only genuine masterpieces have qualified for entry! Whether you are a nostalgic player with a penchant for Atari arcade games or whether you revel in the thrill of the race in Mario Kart, there will be something in this fun and informative book for you!
