Editorial Reviews

Review

As a catalog of all 876 NES games, this work is unique in its breadth of coverage and will be of great interest to old-school video gamers and collectors.
Booklist

It's not often that we check out books here at GotGame, but this opportunity seemed too good to pass up. The Nintendo Entertainment System, or as it's commonly known, the NES, is an iconic console in the gaming industry.

A definitive resource that is more than worthy of the title Encyclopedia

About the Author

Chris Scullion first fell in love with video games over 30 years ago with his discovery of the NES at age four. 13 years ago, he turned his passion into a profession as a video games journalist, most notably as the longest-running staff member of Official Nintendo Magazine. Chris has also written for Computer and Video Games, Official Xbox Magazine, Official PlayStation Magazine, Nintendo Life, Retro Gamer, GamesMaster, Polygon, Red Bull, Vice, and The Guardian, and has appeared on the BBC News to discuss goings-on in the world of video games. In 2018 he was nominated for Best Critic by the Games Media Brit List.

When Chris was nine years old and reading The Complete Guide To Consoles, he decided he wanted to pursue a dream of one day writing for a Nintendo video game magazine and writing something definitive, like the very guides that drew him to this dream. Chris has been living the first part of his dream for the past 13 years; The NES Encyclopedia is his realization of the second part. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A big old tome of your childhood.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 8, 2019
I first became aware of Chris Scullion via Twitter's retro scene, and was delighted to discover his blog and it's intelligent and insightful writing. As a gamer nearer 40 than 30, it was great to find someone that I felt echo'd not only my childhood thinking, but my modern day mindset and views on games as a result of my experiences with this formative era.

As a huge NES fan I was therefore clearly the target audience for this book, yet it has exceeded my expectations and beyond.

Firstly, the production quality is of a very high standard. Nice thick hard cover and glossy pages has meant this has already survived several encounters with my 2 and a half year old daughter and her inquisitive hands! Who has been enamoured with those glossy screenshots contained within. It also means that when not in use it looks great on the shelf, and isn't going to end up looking like your actual NES game boxes no doubt do these days.

The book has a lovely clear layout. Each title in the collection (remember this is an encyclopedia, not a selective list of the author) is accompanied by a blurb, a fact and a nice clear image. Some games have a larger amount of copy than others, but every game is covered. Many of you will no doubt make a beeline for the heavy hitters or titles from your past, for me that was Punch Out (heavy hitter pun intended) and then I began to just browse through the book, as someone who loves games but no longer owns a NES this has been a fantastic companion and nostalgia blast, pretty much within the first 10 minutes of opening it I had sent two photos of the pages to my bro, my dedicated NES sidekick during the era, with a load of excitable 'remember this!?' sort of messages, and sent him more since. And this is in fact the sort of reaction Chris himself mentions wanting to incite in the intro.

In the age of kickstarters, YouTubers and Streamers, virtually everyone has had access to getting their message and voice out there. As great as that is, I for one feel there is a definite difference in the quality that brings with some of the products though. And I definitely feel this is well up in the higher echelons of writing in the subject. And I say that as a self proclaimed Sega diehard too!

So well and truly given this my own official seal of quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars The one true Encyclopedia.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 8, 2019
I remember Smash Bros. Melee’s trophies got me fascinated with retro games. The NES Encyclopedia by Chris Scullion is the sort of book I wish I had back then, when the internet was in it’s infancy. He talks about literally every officially and unofficially released title for the NES.
He talks about the games mechanics, history, production, and there’s always a fun fact about the game.
I’ve been reading Chris Scullion’s work since his days at Official Nintendo Magazine, and it’s great to see him getting his own book published! It’s well earned and deserved.
If you like “Did you know gaming?” or any other facts based video game shows then you should definitely pick up this book.
It’s already selling well enough that it looks like a follow up, presumably an “SNES Encyclopedia” is on the way.
I hope he get’s to make one for the N64, the Gamecube, Wii, Game boy.. and on and on and on.
Stellar book.

I have been aware of Chris Scullion and his writing since the days of ONM way back when I was younger.
He is someone who has a style of writing that I enjoy and has a good sense of humour too.
This book details all the NES you can imagine and then a few more on top for good measure.
The book itself is well presented and opens out flat whatever page you are looking at.

I thought it would be good to dip in an out of from time to time but found myself reading page after page. The major titles get half a page with the 'lesser' titles four to a page.

It's super stuff and i for one can not wait for the SNES book that will follow.

Highly recommended for any Nintendo fan or gamer in general. Buy it now!
