Description

From the humble audiocassette to out-of-this-world virtual reality, this is the story of videogames—told through objects!

Most people have played videogames, whether it was Pong way back when or Pokémon Go today. The story of their creation and development is fascinating, encompassing hardware, software, concept, equipment, and more. Now the curators of the UK’s award-winning National Videogame Arcade take you on a journey through joysticks and microchips, Game Boys and cuddly toys, guitars and drums, as they explore how videogames are made, played, and loved. This entertaining history ranges from The Age of Empires III Collectors’ Edition, Barcode Battler, and the Bioshock Xbox 360 faceplate to Dance: UK Dancemat, Packman and Nintendo, Tamagotchi, and Virtual Reality Headsets. Whatever your interest in gaming, from casual player to medal-winning champion, this book’s for you!
