The Nostalgia Nerd's Retro Tech: Computer, Consoles & Games [9781781575703]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Remember what a wild frontier the early days of home gaming were? Manufacturers releasing new consoles at a breakneck pace; developers creating games that kept us up all night, then going bankrupt the next day; and what self-respecting kid didn't beg their parents for an Atari or a Nintendo? This explosion of computers, consoles, and games was genuinely unlike anything the tech world has seen before or since.

This thoroughly researched and geeky trip down memory lane pulls together the most entertaining stories from this dynamic era, and brings you the classic tech that should never be forgotten.


AUTHOR: With well over 100,000 followers on YouTube as The Nostaligia Nerd , Leigh is well known to his loyal fans for his in-depth videos about the software, hardware, games, toys, programs and magazines of the 70s, 80s and 90s. He has no shame admitting his addition to retro tech (indeed it would be hard to hide).
