Been reading a few gaming books lately.
Itchy Tasty is a great in-depth look at Resident Evil up to RE4.
Life is a Game is an inspiring look at the life and games of Mev Dinc, from his days growing up to working with Activision/Electric Dreams in the 80s and then running his own studio, Vivid, in the 90s.
If you're of an 8-bit bent I can also heartily recommend Hints & Tips for Videogame developers by Andrew Hewson and the story of Automata Deus Ex Machina, by Mel Croucher.
Also another vote for the fab Games That Weren't.
If you're after something a little more nostalgic, there's Hey! Listen! by Steve McNeil which is a sideways take on gaming in general and very funny to boot.
Of course there are loads of great books from Fusion Retro Books, but as I've contributed to some of them I'll just leave this link here to those: https://fusionretrobooks.com/ and there's also Bitmap books of which this is my fave: https://www.bitmapbooks.co.uk/products/sinclair-zx-spectrum-a-visual-compendium
I'm just about to start Arcade Imperfect by Jerry Ellis and Andrew Fisher which is all about arcade conversions, and that looks very nice too.
I'm sure there's some more lurking on my shelf but think that will do you for now!
