[quote name=\'aaron sica\' date=\'Feb 22 2004, 12:58 PM\'] I fully agree....As someone who picks up "High Score!" and "The Complete History of Video Games" every time he goes into Borders, [/quote]
 Do you mean "The Ultimate History Of Video Games?" The 600-page tome? I received that for Xmas, and I'm reading that now, and I can't recommend it highly enough, it's about as complete and accurate as one could ask for so far....

 After checking on Amazon, yes, my mistake - "The Ultimate History of Video Games". I honestly don't know why I just don't bite the bullet and buy the book, as it is an excellent one..."High Score" has out a 2nd edition as well, but that's mainly pictures, IIRC..

I should look into that. Not a thing wrong with a mostly-picture book, especially when it's mostly pictures of old, great video games! :)

EDIT: Oh, wait, I have this! (The first edition, anyhow). Yes, a lot of pictures, but they are excellent ones, and there is a lot of great information in there as well!

And you should also check out "Phoenix: The Rise and Fall of Video Games" by Leonard Herman, which I believe I also brought w/me to GSC11 last summer...large chunks of it were used as part of the bonus materials to Atari Anniv. Edition Redux for PS1.

In a new gsn commercial, GSN has put a pacman overlay on Match Game to advertise their video games documentary.
I'm not buying that conclusion.  Another promo had Asteroids supered over a clip of Lingo, a show that's not going anywhere (that I know of).
Wonder how a promo with a What's My Line clip would look? Imagine a video game superimposed during Dorothy Kilgallen's questioning!

Cordially,
