Qui a peur des jeux vidéo ?

Author(s) : Alain Le Diberder, Frédéric Le Diberder
Editor : La Découverte
Publication date : 12-01-1993
Language : french French

One of the first french book which seriously discussed about videogames. It features a passionating chapter on the history of videogames (which introduces the idea of dividing the history according to generations of home consoles), a classification of videogames, and a global view of the influence of videogames in our society. The two authors also address a series of then hot but still current issues: can videogames make kids violent? Are players really lacking social skills?Are videogames sexists? What about the ideologies broadcasted by some videogames? It's an excellent book with still relevant and thoughtful ideas. We warmly recommend you to read it, or to read its second edition as it's now a "classic book", at least in France.
