Gaming Record Breakers

(5 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Carlton Kids

Did you know that Tetris is the most “ported” game of all time (i.e. converted from its original platform so that it can run on all consoles)? Or that a gamer from Australia made a mile-long playable guitar in Minecraft? Or even that 1,237 different vehicles feature in Gran Turismo 6? Fortunately, Gaming Record Breakers is here to fill in all the gaps in your gaming knowledge.

Presented in a colourful, large paperback with each double-page spread dedicated to either a different game or gaming-related topic such as cosplay (dressing up as characters from your favourite game), MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Player Games), crowdfunding and much more, this is an ideal read for any gaming-mad kid.

There’s useful data and fun facts regarding the history, development and success of each game, which gives kids an idea about how long the games they love playing can take to develop, how they were inspired, and how games – and gaming technology - has evolved over time.
