    Thoroughly enjoyed this as a SEGA fan. The language is a little simplistic and the descriptions are often a bit dry, but otherwise this is a detailed overview of various SEGA franchises that have their origins in the arcade. I really like the attention given to ports and obscure sequels, and there’s even a few fan games featured which is the sort of detail an unofficial publication should absolutely shed some light on. The magazine-style presentation is also lovely and despite the artwork and sc Thoroughly enjoyed this as a SEGA fan.

The magazine-style presentation is also lovely and despite the artwork and screenshots that litter the pages, they don’t spoil the flow of the text. Very excited to pick the up the 2nd volume after reading this.

    My first HG101 book, was originally surprised and put off by the design but the wealth of information more than made up for the odd design. The 'rustic' feel of thier books may not be to everyone's taste but for simple and easy to read facts presented with love and passion... you can't go wrong.

    Somewhat uneven editing and writing due to the group format mars an otherwise excellent series of bite-sized summaries of classic arcade games.

    While I waited for the next books on my list to arrive from the library, I pulled this previously unread volume from the bookshelf. I've respected the work that Kurt Kulata and other writers have done in documenting video games of varying levels of notoriety for Hardcore Gaming 101 for some time, and I have some fond but vague memories of watching people play the motorized deluxe arcade versions of Outrun, Space Harrier, and Super Thunder Blade. This book is a solid. well laid-out, and colorful While I waited for the next books on my list to arrive from the library, I pulled this previously unread volume from the bookshelf.

This book is a solid. well laid-out, and colorful collection of the technical histories of these and other Sega arcade games, and it's the kind of documenting video games' histories that we need since the developers and publishers don't aim to preserve their products' histories.

    The book contains a lot of interesting information about many Sega Classics, but is also filled with what I think are unnecessary details that make the body of the book difficult to engage with. I mostly refer to the analysis of different version of every game, how the porting of the game influenced the game experience. While it it somewhat interesting, it would work better as an appendix to the main text.
