My Review:

We are not die-hard gamers in my household but do play every now and then.  We've been immersed lately in the Guinness World Records 2016: Gamers Edition.  The facts and records may not be life learning lessons but they sure are interesting.  The kids and I have engulfed ourselves in this illustrative book.  Each time I scan this 216-page book I find new and interesting things to read.  It's full of facts and information pertaining to games and sports.  This book is abundant with photos.  It definitely sparks conversations, gets us interested in new games, and makes us reminisce about the ones we've played in the past.  I feel that this book is more appropriate for teens and adults, as it does occasionally feature adult content.  Some games featured in the book are Madden NFL, The Sims, PAC-Man, Street Fighter, Minecraft, among many others.  Included are tips 'n' tricks to help advance in certain games.  Gamers and techies will love this informative and absorbing book.

Win It!

One person will win a copy of Guinness World Records 2016: Gamers Edition.

Well I haven't really been much of a gamer since childhood. I always loved to play Mario Brothers, and tetris. My son is the gamer in our family and his favorite is Minecraft. I don't really understand the game but i'm glad it appears to be a clean game that most ages could play.
