Top 3 Right Now: Marissa’s Top Picks for Gamers

As inspired by the recent PAX West gaming convention, Marissa from our Mariner community library has compiled her Top 3 (well, 4) books for gamers!

What should we gaming nerds put in our faces, Melissa?

Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia
“This essential in-depth guide is full of stunning artwork and in-game images of the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic. It features extensive lore about the characters, weapons, vehicles, events, planets, and more. SWTOR is a free-to-play PC game with an optional monthly subscirption.

World of Warcraft Chronicle: Volume I
An impressive tome that covers the mythology, prehistory, and history of the Warcraft universe’s beginning up to the opening of the Dark Portal. This book will help fill in some of those plot holes and time loops you’ve been dying to make sense of over the years.


The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia
Hyrule Historia invites readers to celebrate 25 years of Zelda games with concept art, sketches, and lore. The vibrant colorful images and commentary is sure to get you hyped for the next Zelda game.

And, because you can never get enough awesome gaming books, there’s one more:

Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive
This Ultimaia Archive is bursting with sketches, concept art, character information, memorable quotes, world maps, monster indexes, and notes from the original artists and devs for Final Fantasy games I – VI.”


Excellent suggestions, Marissa – thank you!

Stay tuned next week when Lindsey from our Coupeville community library will give us a list of her top 3 recent reads.
