My highlight from Bitmap Books' offering

Of course, interest in the different consoles, game genres and individual games is distributed differently. While some of you may have played on Commodore and Mac, others have played on SNES and Game Boy. And while some prefer to play computer role-playing games (CRPG), others are more interested in punching and shooting.

Personally, I find the book “Game Boy: The Box Art Collection” particularly interesting. The Game Boy accompanied me for a long time and aroused my interest in various games and franchises (Mario, Zelda, Pokémon, etc.). In addition to the handheld, the first version of which came out in 1989, the book also shows other hardware as well as many games and game series. There are descriptions of the individual games, the cover art of the packaging and a few screenshots from the game. You can take a look inside here.
