1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die
This is a series where I have made it my mission to go through every video game in the 2013 edition of the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die, by Universe Publishing. I have actually done two text reviews of the book, which can be found here: and here. Long story short - I didn't like the book. I thought that it had a very bad understanding of video game history; putting in the most random games; excluding some of the most influential games of all time that even a novice would know about; and not to mention the filler. So many of the games in the book are blatant clones of each other, many franchises have way too many entries - the most egregious example would probably be four Guitar Hero games making it into the book.
