handy reference guide to yesterdays computer and console tech Great little book on computer and video game consoles from 1972 (Magnavox Odyssey) to 2001 (Microsoft Xbox) covering everything in between. Perfect coffee table book and conversation starter full of colour photos and nerdy facts and includes a brief guide to the good and bad games for each system.
Brilliantly written trip through Computing nostalgia The book is a lovingly created romp through Computing history, covering the golden age of computer gaming, all the way from the 70s and the Magnavox to the Xbox (which makes me feel old as well as Nostalgic!).The snippets and history of each system are written by someone with a clear passion and love for retro gaming and provide an insight into not only the consoles and computers you love, but those you may have missed.It would make a great gift for any retro Gamer or…
You think you know everything? Think again… I discovered this book through my knowledge of the author and his work via YouTube under the handle Nostalgia Nerd, on all things retrospective. If that passion followed through into printed form then this book could and should be a winner… i was not dissapointed. Even the most die-hard retroheads will find so much here that is new to them… rediscover the feeling of wonderment when you ‘met’ these machines for the first time and so many ‘new to you’ moments along the way!
