Review: All Your Base Are Belong to Us: How Fifty Years of Videogames Conquered Pop Culture

User Review  - Kristin Lieber - Goodreads

The behind-the-scenes story of home video games. Ok, the writing is not high lit, tends to be over the top, but no one else could tell the story this well. It reminded me of another favorite book, The Kid Stays In The Picture. Read full review

User Review  - Meg - Goodreads

interesting, although few of the games I most loved as a young person (snerk) were portrayed. I enjoyed the breath of game genres covered and the insight into makers, pared with "rise of the video game zinsters" by Anna Anthropy tickled my brain. Read full review

User Review  - Tyler - Goodreads

I thought this was an interesting approach to video game history. He doesn't walk you through a linear timeline of events, but bounces between themes and big advances in gaming and tells each individual story. It made me want to buy more video games that I hadn't heard of before. Read full review

Some interesting history here, but too scattershot and casual to be of much use. Read full review

User Review  - Jason - Goodreads

Harold Goldberg's inappropriately titled All Your Base Are Belong To Us (AYB) is a comprehensive and thoroughly researched look into the people behind the last 50+ years of video games. From moving dots to bits and bytes, AYB provides readers with a fantastic dissertation on game development. Read full review

User Review  - Jonathan - Goodreads

It's a strong account of the evolution of the video gaming culture. One of the things that it does best is labeling the controversies of each individual era of video gaming, if you can make a case for individual eras within a medium that has yet to be around for a century. Read full review
