The Comic Book Story Of Video Games
Video games fit nicely at an intersection of technology, art and culture. So it’s fun to see their history expressed in an artistic, comic-book form. The Comic Book Story of Video Games: The Incredible History of the Electronic Gaming Revolution by Jonathan Hennessey and Jack McGowan covers the comprehensive history of video games – the systems, people and games themselves – in a cool graphic novel form.
Historical and mostly chronological, The Comic Book Story of Video Games is part history and part a nostalgia-filled trip down memory lane if you’ve played games since childhood. (Some of the references pre-date us, so Gen X may be the primary target audience.) The main focus is less on the games and more on their development, making the book appealingly geeky and less of a chronology of popular games. A fun read and good gift for a gamer in your life.
