The ABC of Video Games by Gregor Kartsios is a book that brightly illustrates important points in the history of video games to date and explains them in compact form. That Lexicon with 192 pages offers an overview of different consoles, game genres, games and more - sorted from A to Z. The author is no stranger to video games, he worked for “Game One” on MTV, among other things, and is a member of the “ Plauschangriff "podcasts, has his own gaming channel on YouTube and is currently also working at Rocket Beans TV, where he is editor and presenter for the" Nerd Quiz "format as well as the" Retro Club ".

He's a pro when it comes to early console generations and Japanese RPGs, which he also shows on his own YouTube channel. He has summarized his collected knowledge as well as the researched content in his book "The ABC of Video Games".

You can already convince yourself of the table of contents and individual entries in the gaming lexicon using the “look into the book” function on the linked Amazon page. It's about Atari, Beat 'em Ups, Commodore, Handhelds, Jump & Run, PlayStation, Pokémon, Tetris, Xbox, Zelda and much more. In addition to interesting texts, the book also contains numerous photos and screenshots in color, for example from the consoles and games mentioned. I don't know if the book lives up to the subtitle “Everything gamers need to know about video game history”. But you can get a good cross-section of the topic here. What do you think? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic :)
