Forget about bits and bytes, data and code and see the world of videogames through the most unique, important and sometimes downright ordinary stuff on the planet. From the humble audio cassette to out-of-this-world virtual reality, this is the story of video games – told through objects! The curators of the UK's award-winning National Videogame Arcade take you on a journey through joysticks and microchips, Game Boys and cuddly toys, guitars, drums and Ocarinas as they tell the story of how video games are made, played and loved. Whatever your interest in gaming – casual Pokemon player, GTA expert, medal-winning FIFA champion of anything in-between – this is the book for you.
