    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone here has any book suggestions on video games? I'm looking more so for non-fiction. So I'm thinking more books like Masters of Doom (the history of id software and the relationship between Romero and Carmack). Or something intellectual yet video games related.

    Any suggestions?

    I have not read these books yet, but they are certainly on my to read list.

    Race for a New Game Machine, The: Creating the Chips Inside the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 by Mickie Phipps David Shippy - Talks about the silent player in the latest console generation, IBM, and how they managed to shaft Sony/Toshiba by using the Cell technology to design the Xenon processor for Microsofts X360.

    Everything bad is good for you: How popular culture is making us smarter by Steven Johnson - Johnson discusses a theory he has devised called "The Sleeper Curve": basically all those media that have been thought to be mindless and a waste of time are actually challenging our minds in novel ways.
