Description - A Brief History Of Video Games by Rich Stanton
A Brief History of Video Games describes and explains the remarkable evolution of interactive entertainment, from the demonstration of Nimrod in 1951 to full-body virtual reality in 2014. Video games are a technology-led medium and this book examines everything from the first wood-panelled Pong machines in California right up to the engineering masterpieces that now sit in countless homes, with brief stopovers for dead-ends like Philips CDi and early VR. Most importantly, it's all about the games how these experiences have evolved from simple call-and- response mechanics into sophisticated, captivating worlds, responsive in just about every way to players.
