    Hi Fellow Gamers!

    My book covering EVERY game for the Nintendo NES, Sega Master System, and Atari 7800 is now available in paperback. You can order it here:

    Sample Pages:

    Book Description:

    A follow up to 2007's Classic Home Video Games, 1972-1984, this reference work provides detailed descriptions and reviews of every U.S.-released game for the Nintendo NES, the Atari 7800, and the Sega Master System, all of which are considered among the most popular video game systems ever produced. Organized alphabetically by console brand, each chapter includes a description of the game system followed by substantive entries for every game released for that console. Video game entries include publisher/developer data, release year, gameplay information, and, typically, the author's critique. A glossary provides a helpful guide to the classic video game genres and terms referenced throughout the work, and a preface provides a comparison between the modern gaming industry and the industry of the late 1980s. Foreword by Bill Kunkel.

    As always, thanks for reading!

    I'll ask a question and if you bother stick around and chat with anyone interested, I won't lock the thread.

    What inspired you to write this book?

    The point is to have everything in one easy to access place without having to really go searching. As much as you can say, "internet," reference books like these are actually really nice to have. In the music field, books like these will never go away. The internet is rarely as useful as something put together by a professional, because who would spend that much time on something and give it away for free?

    This isn't the first time he's dropped in like this. Check his past posts. He came back to defend once and he's commented in other threads.
