Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read.

Sonic, Mario, PlayStation---these terms are now part of the cultural lexicon. It isn't uncommon to find a video game console lurking under televisions, but at the same time, this newly emerged media has come under attack by those looking to find a cause for society's ills. Part rock 'n' roll, part multibillion dollar industry, videogaming is the fastest growing media in modern culture. This Pocket Essential contains a complete history of videogames; cultural essays on branding, popular culture, violence, and female gamers; and reviews of over 120 of the most important videogames of the past30 years.
