Interesting read

This was a fun book to read. I had hoped it would touch a little more on the programming side instead of just the testing phases but still pretty good. The 3 star rating is only because of some of the grammar errors that came up and made things a little confusing.

    Enjoyable And Interesting

    Gaming Wonderland is a great read for those who are interested in the business of video game creation, specifically game testers. Fraulo doesn't get too specific on many games (though he does mention a few). What he does instead is give a glimpse of the nuts and bolts behind those games. I thought it was a lot of fun.

    Excellent, honest writing.

    A great, true story about a love affair with gaming and becoming disillusioned with the hype surounding the industry. Many great titles are mentioned and talked about, along with some dry nerd humor, making this an honest, enjoyable read. Gamers, for the win!
