There are books out there that are "nice" to have and then those that are a "must" have...this is one of those I "must" have. It is full of information pertaining to games that range form scores to statistics, pertaining to games themselves. If you have any interest in video games you have to own this. In addition to consoles, retro, and arcade, they even include sections of the most popular games found on iPhones, Android, etc. I purchased this book for my Middle School classroom for reading periods and there's always a group of kids happily going through it. Additionally, the pages are adorned with popular illustrations of video game characters and scenes from games that captivates even those who don't like to read. I previously purchased the 2010 edition and have no regrets buying this one. It's a great value for the plethora of neat things offered inside its cover!

Not for "actual" records........ Jan. 24 2012
By ahoffoss - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was really excited about getting this book and once I opened it, I quickly discovered that this was NOT what I was hoping it would be! If you're looking for "records" such as "Best-selling LIPS track" or "First Xbox 360 Movie Karaoke Game" then you're in LUCK! And yes,...those ARE, in fact, actual records included in this book. You can find records of best scores and such, but they are included at the very end and are hardly even recognized. All in all, I should've sent the book back, but maybe my 9 year old nephew will like it?!

lazy, blatant marketing Feb. 10 2012
By ZD - Published on
Format: Paperback
What can I say, picked this up at a garage sale. Upon opening the book it was very clear why it was there. It is a very lazy effort, with mostly records such as "Best Selling __________" or "First ___________".

Some of the lists provided are things that are subjective and are strangely places in a record book. Most of these lists also seem to lean toward the promotion of current games. If you are looking for something meaningful to an actual gamer stay away, if you are looking for an advertizement in book form then this is right up your alley.

Amazing in Every Way March 13 2013
By ThePancake - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is the ultimate record book for all things gaming. With the many records, the awesome scoreboards by Twin Galaxies, and the overall awesome creation, this book is the one to get.

Though it may be 2012's Edition, it still holds records that may not have been shown in 2013's.

I recommend this book to gamers who want a challenge.

Loved reading about new records being broken in the gaming world. Very recommended for hardcore fans. I enjoyed the 2011 edition a little bit more, but this is still great.
