EarthBound by Ken Baumann
“Jagged Alliance 2 has the perfect guide in Darius Kazemi.” - Rob Zacny
"Super Mario Bros. 2 shines a much-needed light on a game whose significance has rarely felt fully understood ... This is required reading for game historians." - Nintendo Life
"Gabe Durham's Bible Adventures is a riot and a joy. A+++" - Justin Taylor, author of Flings and The Gospel of Anarchy
"At once a memoir, a lecture on storycraft, an apology, and a love letter to the classic Dungeons & Dragons video game. [...] Bell reminds us that to write well—and to live well—we must remain true to our hidden, buried selves." - Fiction Advocate
"Metal Gear Solid is a great critical book about a game that the authors clearly love, and the switching of voices between Ashly and Anthony Burch provides a nice point and counterpoint that allows the text to disagree with itself fairly often. What emerges is some firm yet friendly back and forth analysis that opens up a canonical videogame further than it ever has been before." 9/10 - Paste
"You’re in great hands here with Nick’s wit, personal touches, deep appreciation, and profound insights." - Craig D. Adams, Superbrothers
"Maybe the best primer on game design ever written." - Zach Gage
"An excellent snapshot of a player’s experience with a game while trying to negotiate their place in both an adolescent and virtual world. It’s a quick, thoughtful read that kept me engaged throughout." 8/10 - Paste
