Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Games Volume 1: The Ultimate Guide to PC and Video Games (Book of Games series)?

NO METAL GEAR ???!!!!  Jan 1, 2008
It has no metal gear games what so ever!!! No PS 1 no PS 2 no PSP no PS 3 no nothing!!!! And I wonder, why??? It is the greatest game ever!!!! The author is bias, he doesn't like metal gear or something...
And the book doesn't go into an "in depth" history of video games...
It is an ok book but I can manage without it, I have an internet connection...

Really Good, and about time!  Jan 4, 2007
I found this to be a really good book! Its got some really nice editorials, which most reviewers dont give to much credit for. Most of them open the book and say "Oh, its just a catalog" but if you look and read through, it has some articles about the future of gaming and research on gaming. And a quick look at video game heros.

The book, has a list over major tittles of 2006, which in its self is really good, because it gives you an idea of what games you might like, if you liked a specific tittle.

And Volume 2 Will be more in-depth then the first, and they are going to make a nostalgia one too! Which im looking forward too!

This book is a really nice guide to parents and alike, as it gives you insite to what games are good for your children ect.
Needs less cataloguing and more history  Dec 26, 2006
This book reads more like a catalog than I expected. I was hoping for a comprehensive history and documentation of video games, but instead, it feels like the same information you get from a video game review website.
Great resource  Dec 15, 2006
Based on the reviews in the book, I just found a game that is perfect for mye nephew. I'm looking forward to Volume 2
