computer games history and theory

Posted by Andrei Thomaz | Fri Dec 2nd 2005 8:05 p.m.

hello list,

I am writing a reasearch project, and I need some references about
computer games. All that I have read along these year are articles,
sites (gamestudies.org and ludology.org, mainly) and this kind of stuff,
but no book about the subject. I wrote the project with these
references, but I am looking for books and more stuff, so I can read
them in next months. I need two things:

- history of computer games
- characteristics of computer games (something as what Manovich does in
relation to new media)

All that I have found was:

1) HANDBOOK OF COMPUTER GAME STUDIES
Author: GOLDSTEIN, JEFFREY H.
Author: GOLDSTEIN, JEFFREY
Author: RAESSENS, JOOST
by MIT Press 2005

2) the books listed at:

thanks for any indication,
andrei
