Dr Wardyga’s thorough research and comprehensive attention to detail make his work on “The Video Games Textbook” an intelligible triumph. In the introduction, he says his goal for the textbook was “to facilitate learning the history, business, and technology of video games with visually stimulating, comprehensive, and chronological chapters that are relevant and easy to understand for a variety of readers”, and without a shadow of a doubt, he has followed through. Every chapter holds a tremendous amount of information without leaving the reader feeling overwhelmed, accompanied by relevant trivia and quizzes to enhance their understanding even further.
The text covers every base for anyone who holds any interest in video gaming, whether it be the technology behind video games, details on consoles, or its effect on society. And while the book’s contents have obvious educational benefits, it can be read and enjoyed by those outside an academic environment. Dr. Wardyga’s knowledge of the gaming universe is vast, and his book makes that abundantly clear. I have and will continue to recommend this book to anyone interested in the topic!

Could not have found a better textbook about video games.2018年10月15日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
The Video Games Textbook covers everything about video games from the year a console or particular game was released, what generation it was in, the gross sales projections, and the competition & market shares of consoles (Nintendo, Miscrosoft, Sony, etc.) in specific regions like Japan, North America, Europe, etc. In addition, Dr. Wardyga also provides insight on how video games are used in certain industries like the U.S. militaries and even medical schools for various practices of medicine, including video games where you have to operate on a patient. Overall, the read was great, and if you are interested in the video game industry, I would highly recommend this textbook.

The Video Games Textbook is a valuable tool for reseaching gaming from the very beginning, with historic photos, colorful charts and details from each decade. Enjoyed reading about my first console and the people that started it all! Everyone will appreciate the walk through history found in this textbook. Highly recommend The Video Games Textbook, a great book filled with knowledge and substance.
