Can you spout off gaming stats like a baseball fanatic? Do you know the best selling game of last year, or the most popular console of all time? If not, then you may want to pick up your own copy of the 2009 Guinness Book of World Records Gamer's Edition and keep up with gaming trivia. Available this week, the Guinness Gamer's Edition ($15) is a textbook of gaming facts that gives you a crash course on the history of gaming, includes interviews with record holders, lists of highest scores, and top games of the year.
So next time you're invited to a Guitar Hero party, you'll be prepared with the name, age, hometown, and stats of the highest GH scorer ever. Impressive? Indeed.
