Format: Hardcover
This book is long overdue. For years we've tried to get by in the game industry without a common language. "Game Designer" means one thing to one person and another to someone else. With the dictionary, hopefully we can all be on the same page. For Game Developers and students of Game Arts & Design, this is an invaluable asset, and a must for every bookshelf.

An awesome book, very helpful. There are not many gaming dictionaries out there and it is very hard to find certain gaming terminologies on the web. I highly recommend this book not just for any average gamer, but also designers, developers, hobby, or just to touch base with certain terms and always improve your knowledge when going into a convention.

I picked this up to help me better communicate with software engineers. Knowing the existing terms for things can be helpful. This dictionary was somewhat helpful. There are terms some terms and expressions that are missing from the lexicon. Mostly, I needed some way to do a reverse look up on expressions. A dictionary isn't the best tool for this.
