A fantastic recollection of the games that captured me as a kid, I wasn't truly obsessed with gaming until I found Doom on a 486 at my friend's house and nothing's been the same since. 

I was enthralled from cover to cover as I gained a deeper appreciation for the art that encapsulated so much of my '90s existence 

Thank you so much John, you inspired many a land party in hours of Homebrew PC action and finger cramps.

If you are a nerd and have nostalgia for DOOM, Wolf3D, Commander Keen, BBSes etc. then the first two thirds of this book are a mildly interesting read, albeit very poorly written. After Ion Storm it rapidly becomes incredibly dull, cos who wants to read about Gunman Taco Truck or whatever else nonsense dude has done since id? Not me!
