Pretty awesome book here.

Not that I agree with the entire list.... but for something with a thousand games on it, I'm honestly surprised at how much I do agree with... tons of PC stuff on this, most of which I've never played =(

Here's a link to the list:

Why the hell is the hardcover copy 40 bucks cheaper than paperback? Paperback books have ALWAYS been cheaper until I saw this...

No Icewind Dale either. The list is pretty crappy.

No Conquest: Frontier Wars. Rainbow Six Vegas 2, but completely shuns the original games which were by far the best tactical games I've played. Unreal Tournament 2004 and 3, but no original?

WTF was this guy smoking? AWFUL list. He literally just picked 1001 random games and wrote little blurbs about them.

Yep. Not to mention the price on the book is crazy.

There are quite a few games in that book that I thought were rubbish back in the day, never mind now.

Some good entries on the list, including some lesser known games that deserve to be played.

Some weird choices also, though. Three Metroidvanias, but no Classicvanias? CV3 should have been on the list if nothing else. Damn near every LoZ game, but no StarTropics?

Good call on keeping the list of SMB games shorter than it could have been, though.

Cool that he's got Mark of Kri and Maximo : Ghosts to Glory but not MediEvil from PS1?

Motorstorm Pacific Rift is an amazing racing game. Glad Crimson Skies gets some love. Needs some for Mortal Kombat II . No Star Trek Armada or Bridge Commander??

WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2010 but no listing for WCW/nWo Revenge , WrestleMania 2000 or No Mercy? Disgraceful.
