The latest review of The 100 Greatest Console Video Games: 1977-1987 from Net Galley, reviewed by Joe Hempel:

Recommends This Book
This book is a classic gamer's wet dream. While you may not agree with his list order, it's hard to argue with any of the information presented. There is nothing looked over. The presentation is beautiful with full color large pages of box art and game images for almost every game, this will have you going back and trying to get a hold of these classics.

Everything is covered from ColecoVision to Atari 2600, even up to the first few years of Nintendo, nothing is missed. Not only does he talk up all of these games like Pitfall, Arkanoid, and The Legend of Zelda, he even includes a list called The Next 100 just in case he missed one of your favorites!

In an age where games were being spit out by the billions, there were a TON of crappy games, and Brett Weiss has done the work for you and compiled the best of the best!
The Bottom Line: If you're a gamer buy it, and PROUDLY display it on your coffee table. This is a no-brainer for the gaming niche audience.
