I truly appreciate the different genre that we have encountered for the last book of the semester. this book seems like a crash course in 80’s pop culture. I was familiar with some of the references suggest some of the games that were mentioned, but other references went over my head. in general, I do think that this book is a good read but I believe that a hardcore gamer would appreciate this book much more than I did.
When reading a book that has won many awards I like to read the praise that is given to the author and their work. Before entering Level One I thought I came across another critique what was actually an excerpt from Anorak’s Almanac. It states that, “Being human totally sucks most of the time. Videogames are the only thing that make my life bearable” (Chapter 91, Verses 1-2). I think that it is safe to say that we have all wished that we can be something else rather than what we are. However I’m taking this class and doing numerous outside readings, there are many people really believe that the statement is true. Is reality really that unbearable that people have to find solace in the world?
