Review: The Ultimate History of Video Games: From Pong to Pokemon - The Story Behind the Craze That Touched Our Lives and Changed the World


The Ultimate History of Video Games: From Pong to Pokemon - The Story Behind the Craze That Touched Our Lives and Changed the World The Ultimate History of Video Games: From Pong to Pokemon - The Story Behind the Craze That Touched Our Lives and Changed the World by Steven L. Kent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not a bad book. I always expect something with the word "ultimate" in the title to be the one definitive source for all things for that topic, but that isn't always the case. Lots of good early history of companies (Coleco = Connecticut leather company?! wow). Too bad they didn't cover the xbox360/ps3/wii era of gaming. I also didn't see xbox represented as much as Sony in this history.  It was good to read more about Sega history, which I didn't know a ton about before this. Still a worthwhile book to read if you are into video games.
