The 100 Greatest Console Video Games: 1977-1987 Review

Time to hook up the Starpath Supercharger

It should be obvious from the title that The 100 Greatest Console Video Games: 1977-1987 is a very specific book that will appeal to a very specific audience.

Storytelling takes the front seat in this new crime drama that despite some flaws, shines above the rest.
