This seems like the appropriate forum to post this in: Kurt Kalata of Hardcore Gaming 101 recently announced HG101's first book, The Guide to Classic Graphic Adventures.

Hardcoregaming101.net Presents: The Guide to Classic Graphic Adventures (http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/book.html)

I admit to never having the patience to play through any of the games in the book aside from the NES versions of Shadowgate and Uninvited, but this looks like it'll be an entertaining read.

Just kidding 'bout the fail, looks like an (almost) perfect book

And Myst, perhaps Pyst should have been covered too?

A often overlooked classic on Apple II/C64 is also Intrigue! by Spectrum Holobyte, it should have been included.

Mean Streets Access Software, another good missing title

Pyst is in fact covered in the "Myst" article (along with all other things Myst, right through the many incarnations of Uru). Mean Streets is one of the Tex Murphy games and is likewise not missing.

I do highly recommend the book if you enjoy well-written classic game reviews

ah good those are not missing, I actually overlooked Tex Murphy.

But still, no Lula :-(

I will buy it though, I love those books

To clarify, it already stands at 750 pages.
