Large Cover Image
For devoted gamers as well as those interested in groundbreaking graphic design, this is the first, most comprehensive, and only critical guide ever published to video games. The video game has arrived as entertainment and as an art form. This is the first serious critical evaluation ever published of the best video games and is a testament to the medium's innovativeness and increasing emphasis on aesthetics. Organized chronologically and for all platforms (PC, Xbox, PlayStation, etc.) and covering all genres from the bold ( Grand Theft Auto and Halo ) and dark ( Resident Evil and Silent Hill ) to the spiritual ( Final Fantasy ) and whimsical ( Legend of Zelda ), the book traces the video game from the rough early days of Pong to the latest visual fantasia.
