The last game related book I read was Game Design Companion: A Critical Analysis of Wario Land 4. I thought that it was a very interesting read and I notice a lot of little game design quirks when I play games now.

Also Ive been reading a newly published history of animation thats been in the works for a few years and includes a massive section in the 70s and beyond that situates video game development into a history of film because its all just animation. Which is cool to see.

I sent the author an email though because she mistakenly used an image of Super Mario Bros. 1 from the All-Stars version and credited it to 1985. Hopefully it will be corrected in the next revision.

I had a psychology textbook a while back that used a picture of a kid playing cs 1.6 for a paragraph on the psychological effect of video games
