    1. Artists from all over the world come together to celebrate their love of videos games through original art inspired from video games classics from the arcade, Atari, and Nintendo heyday. Be it Donkey Kong, Mario Bros Q-Bert, Zaxxon, or Dig Dug, video gamers everywhere unite and enjoy some great, fun art.Jon M. Gibson helms this collection of art with a foreword by Chuck Klosterman. The art really does range all over in the collection and like much art, can be debated by critics and fans of the g [...]

    2. I love retro video games, especially from the 80's. This book is a collection of artwork made my fans of these said games. The artwork ranges from print work, to plush and many other types as well. There are a few provocative pieces, but the art is fun and enjoyable. It was a quick flip but a nostalgic one.

    3. I can't entirely say that I've read this book cover to cover, but from leafing through it once at Books-a-Million, I became totally turned off by it. I don't like any of the images. I guess if you are into repulsive and offensive art, this book is for you, but definently not for me.

    4. An absolute must-have for fans of videogame history, or art in general. If you didn't see the actual art, this book is a good second chance.

    5. wished there were some more modern games in here, but being from the 80's, this was an entertaining and unique art book.

    6. This book was a wonderful amalgation of the nostalgia and awesomeness of 8-bit videogames paired with hip art.

    7. Yay, videogames! Some of the art is great, some of it is not so great (but who cares?), and some of it has become something of a genre on the Net. Fun.
