Video games aren't just time wasting, shoot 'em up, brain drainers. No, no. In my circles, video games are often seen and treated as works of art with their own story arcs filled with drama, creativity, and beauty worth celebrating and indeed, even putting on display.

Having a beautiful home and showing your love for gaming don't have to be conflicting concepts. These coffee table books are so beautiful, they'll fit in nicely with highfalutin photography hard-bounds and vintage classics.
