Game Hype: Super Mario How Nintendo Conquered America

Just started reading Super Mario How Nintendo Conquered America by Jeff Ryan for review and I hate the man's negative writing style. However, to learn the secret history and back story of Nintendo, I can put up with it. Jeff Ryan writes in a way that shows no up side, it really shows how much someone can influence the view of history by the tone they set. I've read other pieces on how video games started and about Nintendo, but never in such a dark way.

He talks of Mario as being both worthless and ugly, but still very profitable. It's just the beginning, so I don't know if his style of impending doom is let go and he stops bashing my video game hero.

Look forward to the full review later. Great cover.
