Tech Classics, Computer games design, Computer architecture & logic design

This book celebrates the most exciting period in the history of technology - the arrival of the home computer and home gaming console. YouTube's most successful purveyor of computer nostalgia brings those stories to print.

Remember what a wild frontier the early days of home gaming were? Manufacturers releasing new consoles at a breakneck pace; developers creating games that kept us up all night, then going bankrupt the next day; and what self-respecting kid didn't beg their parents for an Atari or a Nintendo? This explosion of computers, consoles, and games was genuinely unlike anything the tech world has seen before or since.

This thoroughly researched and geeky trip down memory lane pulls together the most entertaining stories from this dynamic era, and brings you the classic tech that should never be forgotten.
