Although I'm a landscape designer by day, I become a retro gamer by night. I've built many custom arcade cabinets and have modeled over 300 accurate 3D models using Google Sketchup for free download to any who need them. I've loved video games and especially arcade games since I far back as I can remember.

This book is a great book to learn more about some of the best arcade games ever made. It is written as a great introduction to the games, yet has plenty of lesser known details about the games that will appeal to experienced collectors. Sean solicited the input of the arcade collecting community to make this book and it paid off with great photos and details for each game. I really enjoy the book and can't wait for the next book!

A fun read from cover to cover. While you may not 100% agree with his opinion of the top 100 arcade games out there, you will agree that this is an excellent addition to any gameroom or mancave. If you're interested in coin-op arcade games... pick this book up.

A very well written and informative book. The author added a nice "human" touch by including pictures and quotes from game collectors and enthusiasts. Just the right amount of humor to make it even more fun to read. This book should be at the top of your "buy" list if you like arcade games!

This book is perfect for the person trying to start an arcade game collection who doesn't know where to begin. Read this book and see what Sean, and many others, believe makes a great arcade game. Take this info and get started. It is also a great read for veteran collectors and makes a great conversation starter. Superbly thought out and highly recommended.
