Comprehensive and informative

The book came in wonderful condition and is well made. The art doesn't disappoint, the colors are lush and the pictures are full of detail. It covers the big names and not so big, from the earliest days through the heyday of Sierra and Lucasarts right to modern titles. Each year is given several titles typically. The interviews are great as well. Absolutely worth owning.
