Book Summary

Most people have played videogames, whether it was Pong on a black and white television or roaming the streets hunting AR creatures in Pokémon Go. The story of videogames is a fascinating one, encompassing hardware, software, games, equipment and more, and A History of Videogames charts this story.

Written by the experts from an award-winning interactive museum with contributions from some of the most important people in the videogame industry. For everyone with an interest in videogames, whether they are a casual Clash of Clans fan, a Call of Duty expert marksman or a fully-fledged FIFA champion. Older players will weep with nostalgia as they see the objects and games from their youth, and the new generation will wonder how people ever managed to play with such blocky graphics and weird concepts!
