In case you are unfamiliar with Twin Galaxies, they happen to be the standard setters for record high scores when it comes to not only console games but primarily coin-op video games. As such they have just published a huge 758 page book “containing arcade world records from players in over 50 different countries collected over the last 30 years.” Keep in mind that this ONLY covers coin-op (arcade, pinball, MAME) games and certainly is an item worthy of taking place in any serious gamers collection and for the amount of pages the price seems to be just right at $34.95.
It’s great to see material like this – it legitimizes the playing of arcade games into an international sport. Think of it as the Guinness Book of World Records for arcade games. Not only does this volume include high scores but also rules regarding many of the featured games as well as biographies of 265 of the top arcade gamers in the world and also a detailed history of electronic coin-op gaming.
