2000 HB IN DJ [POOLE, STEVEN] VIDEOGAMES AND THE ENTERTAINMENT REVOLUTION
More Description from Internet Sources--
The Edge calls "Trigger Happy" a "seminal piece of work". For the first time ever, an aficionado with a knowledge of art, culture, and a real love of gaming takes a critical look at the future of our videogames, and compares their aesthetic and economic impact on society to that of film. Thirty years after the invention of the simplest of games, more videogames are played by adults than children. This revolutionary book is the first-ever academically worthy and deeply engaging critique of one of today's most popular forms of play: videogames are on track to supersede movies as the most innovative form of entertainment in the new century.
