Gaming Record Breakers 2017 is the updated book for little fans who want to know the latest gaming facts and records about the top consoles and games.
Mr K loved reading his Gaming Record Breakers 2016 and often quoted facts from the book. When this updated book came, he quickly looked through for any changes. We compared these two books and it is good to know that most of the facts are still the same, except there are two topics removed and replaced with Game Engine Success and eSports Competition.
What is a Game Engine? Behind a computer game lies complicated computer code which displays the graphics, handles the commands entered by gamers and manages all the scenes, characters and actions. A game engine is a series of computer programs which performs many of these tasks. Inside this book, it tells you how the game engine is being used and many more interesting facts that shape our gaming world.
Gaming competitions and eSports are a big deal today, but the first eSports event was held when there were relatively few computers in the world and no gaming consoles at all. Now everything have changes since computers and consoles were affordable and widely available.
This book is packed with all sorts of records from marathon game sessions that resulted in world-record high scores, to the bestselling games and consoles, magical milestones and fantastic firsts in gaming.
