Author Biography

As a 6th grade teacher and games journalist, Ben Bertoli spends most of his time in front of a classroom or behind a video game console. An expert on kids and gaming, Ben has written articles for Nintendo Life, Kotaku, and Polygon, and helped make games for phones and tablets, including Tic-Tac Bananas, Champs of Numeria, and Froggy Phonics.

Review

"It reminds me of the kind of book I would have grabbed immediately at a school book fair as a kid and not let go of until it was ratty and tattered. This is an excellent roadmap for younger fans, created by two people that clearly have a strong affinity for the video game industry. There's simply not a better all-ages video game book in stands, and certainly not at the $12.95 price point." Nintendojo "It's immediately appealing, either for older children reading themselves or younger gamers perhaps going through it with their parents." Nintendo Life "It's fun to go through them and think of the ones I've played, and when, and maybe even why I haven't played them in such a long time. How many can you check off?" Polygon
