Subtitled "How the PC and DOS Exploded Computer Gaming 1987-1994", this book examines why the PC became the gaming juggernaut despite poor graphics and a design aimed at business users. Author Jamie Lendino tells the full story, from the early ill-fated (if influential) failures such as the PCjr and Tandy 1000, and diving deep into the industry-shattering innovations in processing, graphics, sound, software, and distribution that gave the PC (and the gamers who loved it) unprecedented power and reach.
