About the Book:

An essential reference guide for devoted gamers as well as those interested in groundbreaking graphic design.

The video game has arrived as entertainment and as an art form. 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die is the first, most comprehensive, and only critical guide ever published to video games. 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), this book traces the video game from the rough early days of Pong to the latest visual fantasia.

Compiled by an international team of critics, 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die is the ultimate guide to the world's most dynamic entertainment medium, an invaluable volume for longtime aficionados of gaming and those just discovering its appeal. Each entry includes an illustrated screenshot of the game in action, along with details of its original release date and platform, with informative and authoritative text outlining its play mechanics, artistic qualities, contributions to its respective genre, and more.
