What started as a game of Pong, with little blips dancing across a computer screen, has evolved into a multi-billion-dollar industry that is changing the future, making inroads into virtually all aspects of our culture.Who are the minds behind this revolution? How did it happen? Where is it headed?In Smartbomb, journalists Heather Chaplin and Aaron Ruby take the reader behind the scenes at gaming conventions, into powerhouse think tanks where new games are created, into the thick of the competition at cyberathlete tournaments, and into the homes of gamers for whom playing a role in a virtual world has assumed more relevance and reality than life in the real world.

5.0 Smartbomb: The Quest for Art, Entertainment, and Big Bucks in the Videogame Revolution
I really enjoyed this one! I have been playing video games for a long time and it was nice to go back and re-visit those older times. The book is obviously outdated as it was published quite a while ago, eons in videogame time!Definitely recommended for anyone who likes games. There are no put downs...
