I grow up at time of home computers and game culture revolution, although I don't consider myself a gamer I loved this book, amazing story of the boom of the game industry, today one of the most popular and profit.
Amazing job from Wil Wheaton making you dive into the book.
Strongly recommend, you will have a great time... Guaranteed!
Fantastic story that really brings to light the evolution of gaming culture. I really enjoyed listening to this book, and Will Wheaton made an excellent narrator (with a decent Jay Leno impression to boot). I highly recommend this to anyone interested in gaming or technology.
Masters of Doom took ma back all to my good old days playing Doom at work with my coworkers! It was so much fun and laughter. I enjoyed this game and Quake for a number of years. Book was very intriguing and very fascinating to hear the stories of two masterminds behind Doom. I recommend it to everybody!
Incredible book. Makes me wish I could go back in time and try to follow in the footsteps of these two John's.
As always, Wil Wheaton's narration far exceeds expectations. I've reached a point where I don't think I can listen to another book unless it's read by Wil!
excellent performance. interesting sliver of history that is only going to be more and more interesting as decades go by. very worthwhile read
It's a classic story of talented but wounded kids rising to fame, letting it get to their heads, and then blowing it. But the real hook is all the technical and cultural detail of the late 80's to mid 90's PC era. Wil Wheaton is a fantastic narrator as usual. My only complaint is that the author rushed through the later part of the story.
This book gave much insight into the hidden world of game programmers. After reading Ready Player One by E.Cline I had to know more about these guys and how the gaming world evolved. Highly recommended!
Commander Keen! Because it started it all!
Yes but having to change flights resulted in multiple sittings.
