Subtitled "How the PC and DOS Exploded Computer Gaming 1987-1994", this book examines why the PC became the gaming juggernaut despite poor graphics and a design aimed at business users. Author Jamie Lendino tells the full story, from the early ill-fated (if influential) failures such as the PCjr and Tandy 1000, and diving deep into the industry-shattering innovations in processing, graphics, sound, software, and distribution that gave the PC (and the gamers who loved it) unprecedented power and reach.

Along the way, Lendino explores more than 110 of the PC’s most entertaining and important games, revealing how they paved the way for PC supremacy while also offering players new levels of challenge and fun
