1RetrowireFri 17th Aug 2012 ... Regarding the history of Nintendo? I just picked up Super Mario: How Nintendo conquered America and I've been reading it non stop for days. Really good documentation of Nintendo's birth, its rise and fall (though when it did fall from time to time, it certainly got back up.), it's battle with Sega, It's mistake that caused the Playstation to happen. My favorite story is their first legal battle against Universal Studios regarding the rights to Donkey Kong, EPIC. Either way, anyone read any other good books regarding Nintendo or video games in general? Anyone read this one? Also, this is my first post ever so, hello. Retro Gaming Enthusiast. Nintendo Fan.
