I bought this one a couple years back. Itís by Pat Contri whoís known for his YouTube channel Pat the NES Punk along with contributions from other reviewers. Itís a really nice hardcover book thatís almost like a school text book in size reviewing all the games from the NES. Heís also coming out with a Super Nintendo book.

Not video game related, but since it's the Christmas season I'll toss this out there. We just read it tonight, this book is fantastic if you are a fan of the movie.

At my family's gift exchange I got the Super Mario Encyclopedia I mentioned previously. Looking forward to looking through it.



And my copy of Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive Volume 2 arrived last week. I'll probably skip Volume 3, since I'm not a big fan of the PS2+ era games.

Just wanted to say that both of these books are very good. The NES book is a bit pricey but worth it, it's high quality. Looking forward to his SNES book.
