Submitter: Thought you’d like to see this – I had to pay 25p to order this from my library, the fact that their database listed a book about video games (or pong clones in this case) from 1977, well I just had to go and reserve it and see what it’s about! I’d been the first person to take it out since 1999…. worth the 25p though!
Holly: The cover deems this “a complete illustrated guide to the video game phenomenon that is sweeping the country.” You can even find out “what the new advancements and improvements are.” That sounds great! Except…it’s so old that Submitter is right: all you’ll get are pong clones. Once again, we’ve made libraries look completely obsolete to patrons looking for something new and exciting.
Mary: You know it should be a weeder if I can remember this stuff from my teen years. My husband remembers getting Pong as a teenager and I am sure will be happy to take on all comers in a Pong death match. Click on the links below to see other ALB posts on gaming.
