Replay: The History of Video Games

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A riveting account of the birth and remarkable evolution of the most important development in entertainment since television, Replay: The History of Video Games is the ultimate history of video games.
From its origins in the research labs of the 1940s to the groundbreaking success of the Wii, Replay sheds new light on gaming's past. Along the way it takes in the spectacular rise and fall of Atari, the crazed cottage industry spawned by the computers of Sir Clive Sinclair, Japan's rapid ascent to the top of the gaming tree and the seismic impact of Doom.

Customer Reviews

Essential reading

Rather than focus on one game or one company, the book tells the tale of games as a science and entertainment form, from the first games ever made to current generation.

You'll read about the pioneering MIT groups, the work (and slyness) of Nolan Bushnell, and much more. Even Steve Jobs gets a mention!

It's a fascinating look at how a group of hackers/enthusiasts created our favourite hobby.

Essential reading for fans of the video game, young and old.
