A 218-page collection of essays on the greatest games of all time! ("Greatest" here meaning "voted as favorites by the denizens of GameSpite's forums.") From Tetris to Planescape: Torment to Super Metroid, an enormous variety of titles, formats, genres, national origins, and creators are touched on. This hardcover edition includes 37 pages of material not featured in the standard version of the book, including entries 41-48 and a New Game + feature for Summer and Fall 2009. It's new games journalicious.
A full breakdown of the issue (and eventually all text) is available for reference, as always: http://www.gamespite.net/toastywiki/index.php/Site/Issue15TableOfContents
Also available in a budget-friendly paperback edition: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/812476
The site currently hosted at GameSpite.net has been online in various incarnations since 1996, although it's only in the past few years that it's become a home to smart, incisive critiques by a loosely-associated team of writers.
