1,001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die edited by Tony Mott

Featuring a wide range of games, from classic Atari games such as Breakout and Asteroids to modern phenomenons like World of Warcraft and Halo, this compendium is a hit with serious and casual gamers alike.  Each game is given a short professional review and most include a full-color screen shot.  Including games for arcades, consoles, computers, handheld devices, and phones, the reader is almost sure to stumble across a game they’ve connected with.  The conversations sparked by group browsing of the book tend to lead to impromptu student reviews and recommendations, leading this reader to think that it would be well-used as a model text for review writing. --Regan Schwartz
