This book tells the story of 13 famous video games: Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, Angry Birds, Les Sims, Assassin's Creed, Uncharted, World of Warcraft, Tomb Raider, Metal Gear Solid, Doom, Alone in the Dark, Prince of Persia and Tetris. Each chapter of this 300 pages book is dedicated to one of those games, and presents some information about it. While the book is pleasant to read, the amount of unique information is very variable from one game to another. The book chapters range from excellent (Tetris, Assassin's Creed, Uncharted...) to interesting but lacking many information about their topic (Les Sims, Doom, World of Warcraft...). A book recommended to people discovering video games and desiring to have a quick look at some famous games, without going into the full details of their history, as in a book like La Saga des Jeux Vidéo.
