As Caboodlers, we all love getting lost in a good book. But what about video games?
When Pete Etchells was 14, his father died from motor neurone disease. In order to cope, he immersed himself in a virtual world – first as an escape, but later to try to understand what had happened.
In Lost in a Good Game, Pete journeys through the history and development of video games – from Turing's chess machine to mass multiplayer online games like World of Warcraft – via scientific study, to get to the bottom of our relationship with games – why we do it, and what they really mean to us. At the same time, the book is a very unusual memoir of a writer coming to terms with his grief via virtual worlds.
We're giving away a signed copy of Lost in a Good Game and a PlayStation Classic featuring 20 of the best games from the original console, including Final Fantasy VII, TEKKEN 3, and more. 10 lucky Caboodlers will also receive a signed copy of the book.
