The Comic Book Story Of Video Games

Screen Shot 2018-01-19 at 10.23.46 PMVideo 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.
