General Video Game Industry Books

If you are new to the industry and are looking for some history on where games have been and where they might be going you've come to the right place! Here are my recommendations for those unfamiliar with the industry.

Here are two great books on the history of games. (Printed 2001 & 2002):

The Ultimate History of Video Games
The Ultimate History of Video Games

High Score! The Illustrated History of Electronic Games
High Score! The Illustrated History of Electronic Games

This book was written by a friend of mine on the Business side of our industry. She really did a great job by making it the only business book on our industry that I recommend. (Printed 2003)
