    DescriptionFor 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.

    Review quote
    "[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
