This book attempts to give a quite unique approach on the history of videogames: instead of interviewing game designers about how they created famous games, the author have collected the memories of numerous anonymous videogames players in France. The book is focused on the 8 / 16 bits era (i.e. from the middle of the 80's to the beginning of the 90's). The author, Florent Gorges, have written a very touching book here. While you'll read it quickly, it'll touch you with a deep feeling of nostalgia if you were playing videogames during this period. For the researchers, this book is also a rare testimony of the cultural impact of home videogames on the French civil society, and more specifically the NES, when it appeared... A very interesting and unique book!
