Series Review
This series puts a positive spotlight on gaming, much to the delight of its target audience. Esports Revolution outlines the history and future of gaming as a competitive sport, including potential career paths. This title does have a little overlap with Paid to Game, which talks about streaming, reviewing, and content creation as possible sources of revenue for passionate gamers. Video Games Are Good for You and Video Games Save the World, a JLG selection, show the benefits of gaming, from encouraging people to think creatively to how gaming makes for a more tech-savvy future workforce. Virtual reality games have even been made for medical students to practice techniques on digital patients. The Basics of Game Design will walk readers through the steps of creating their own content. A first-purchase series. Well-written and engaging, these books will appeal to kids who are interested in gaming or need to write a persuasive paper.
