The Reason Physical Books Should not Die
The print Quality of this book is immaculate, with clear printing and a glossy finish. As I'm reviewing this only a week after I got it and this is a hefty book (about 600 pages) so I've only just started to look through it. what I've read so far is great though, each game they cover gets a full write up and it spans pretty much the entire history of gaming. This is a coffee table book, read a bit of it when you like and then show your friends it. The service of the website is good as well, they give you updates on your status of preorder and in delivery they make sure to package the books in a way that keeps them safe (I've had a lot of books from amazon come scuffed)
Trivia source for what the game industry missed
Lots of findings about games that didn't know existed or were planned to exist, and the real motives behind their missed spot of fame.
Plenty of reading to be had!
So far I'm really enjoying "The Games That Weren't." I can tell that there was a lot of thought and effort that went into making this. There's quite a bit of detailed information/pictures to enjoy looking through.
I know a lot of people like it but this is my least favorite Bitmap book. The colours on the cover are great though the green circle is not engraved and sits there a bit strange. I think there should be many more pictures ( even if there is no source material but just an imagination from current authors ). Also, would be good if the pictures are not at the end of the article - as it is a very text heavy book, for me it was becoming a bit boring when I have to read that much to get to the pics ( I do not want to spoil myself ). The stories itself were not that intersting to me - I definitely prefer other books on the topic of lost legacy. The ovedrall opinion is very postive so it might be just me. Give it a chance, hoipefully you will like it more.
Beautiful Coffee Table Addition
High quality and hefty. Shipping material was on another level, practically bullet proof packaging
