Super Mario: How Nintendo Conquered America Review | Warp Zoned

Warp Zoned writes:

"Over his nearly 30-year career, Mario has become the face of the video game industry. So it’s no wonder that author Jeff Ryan used the plumber’s pixelated visage as the focal point in his retelling of Nintendo’s history in Super Mario: How Nintendo Conquered America. Beginning with the company’s first arcade title, Radar Scope, and culminating with the jump to the top of the flagpole that was the Wii, it’s a wild ride that ultimately gets smashed by a Blue Shell." (Culture, GameCube, Industry, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii) 3/5

I recommend the book:

Game Over: How Nintendo Conquered the World.

It was really insiteful and I learned a lot about Nitty's last 120 years since they started back in JP in 1889.
