VIDEO GAMES

From the ""How It's Made"" series, a brightly illustrated, not-too-technical look at all types of video games (arcade games, home video game systems, and hand-held games), how the hardware works, and how the games themselves are produced, with tips on how to win and how to choose and care for home versions. Full-color photographs and cartoons expand on points in the text. There is no discussion of the often violent content of video games nor of any of the alleged physical, social, or psychological effects sometimes associated with them. Fact boxes contain statistics (but no sources) about game use; words appearing in bold are later defined in a short glossary.
