The Final Name of the Latest Book?

Bill Loguidice's picture

Well, for better or worse, it looks like the final name of the full color book Matt and I are furiously working on at the moment will be "Vintage Games: An Insider Look at the History of Grand Theft Auto, Super Mario and the Most Influential Games of All Time". We're also zeroing in on what to do about the cover, which, unfortunately, there's little to no budget for or much room for an image. The biggest issue though is that we have at least 60 days worth of work to get done in 30 days. Fingers crossed and we'll definitely be tapping you all for help with more chapters!

Wow what a title... at least will not need a large image.

Just the fontwork will take up most of the cover.

With a title like that you had better have Mario carjaking someone so he can go pick up Ms. 'hooker' Pac-Man while being dive-bombed by the Galaga insects, while overhead the streaks of a Missile Command base try to protect Liberty City.

Yeah, I'm not happy with the

Yeah, I'm unhappy with the title myself, but since we all couldn't agree on another one, I guess it'll have to work. At least the subtitle is descriptive. We could probably still talk the publisher into something else if it someone had a truly inspired "OMFG THAT'S IT" title for this, but I don't want to get back into those huge lists with the tiny variations.

Another problem is that many good names are already taken, if not by a book, at least by another website. It'd be awesome to have a great title whose URL hadn't been taken already.
