Books About MY Favorite GAMES!?

2014-04-15-chrono-triggerEarthbound and Chrono Trigger are two of my favorite gaming experiences of all time. Let me make that as clear as possible. When I heard about Boss Fight Books and their unique take on classic games I was skeptical at first… Then I thought about it. Have you ever felt the sheer geeky joy of sharing your favorite parts about video games with people? Bonding with an individual because you also liked to use Frog, Lucca and Crono? Or how you thought “Poo” was the worst name of any gaming character? I just had to know. I read a few excerpts from each book (both by different authors) and I suddenly stopped and just pulled out my wallet and purchased.

Why you ask? I stopped thinking about an opinionated psychological debate because of reading each book and instead thought of it as an extension of my love for both games. By reading and thinking about another person’s opinion I could then channel and reminisce on my own. Something I already do (fondly might I add). Boss Fighter Books’ site even had some cool descriptions about their products…

…publishes great books about classic video games. Each of our books will take a critical, creative, historical, and personal look at a single game.

Some books will be about the history of the game’s creation, some will focus on particular elements like level design, story, and music, some will investigate the subculture that has formed around a game, some will bring in outside art, science, and media, and some will have a strong autobiographical element. Many books will be a combination of all these things.

I can’t wait til’ they come in. It’ll be nice to read during my upcoming travels.
