video game books
I am new to these forums so am not quite sure whether this is the appropriate thread to be on. Please feel free to redirect me if i am way off here!
I am trying to become a successful video games journalist. However, i need to brush up on my knowledge of the industry, and also of video game culture and history in general. Could anyone in the know direct me to some particularly informative books currently on the market?
Another small concern of mine is that i am female, and i am not sure if female journalists are uncommon within the video game industry, and if so whether this would make it even harder to become successful. If anyone has any advice on this that would be great.
