In fewer than fifty years video games have become one of the most popular forms of entertainment, but which are the best games, the ones you must play? Video game expert Tony Mott presents 1001 of the best video games from around the world and on all formats, from primitive pioneering consoles like Atari's VCS to modern-day home entertainment platforms such as Sony's PlayStation 3. Each entry includes an illustrated screenshot of the game in action, along with details of its original release date and platform, with informative and authoritative text outlining its play mechanics, artistic qualities, contributions to its respective genre, and more. From "Donkey Kong" to "Doom", and from "Frogger" to "Final Fantasy", "1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die" is the essential guide to everything from the old favorites to those breaking new ground. These are the games that should not be missed.

Review:

"[This book] contains contributions by a handful of my favorite writers, so even though I haven't yet got a galley-glimpse of the finished product, I can just about guarantee it's going to be a good one. The book's already up for pre-order at Amazon, and, should you make your way chronologically through its list, probably will indeed just about last you all of your remaining years." ~BoingBoing.net

"Compiled by an international team of critics, 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die is a collection of chronologically-ordered games from the 70s to 2010." ~Kotaku.com
