Martin Amis on Space Invaders: how games criticism was born

Added: 05.11.2018 8:00 | 9 views | 0 comments


Long since out of print, the novelist’s 1982 guide to the nascent gaming scene is a vivid snapshot of a long-lost world – and is about to be republished
For decades, Martin Amis’s – part anthropological survey of New York’s arcade scene in the early 80s, part video game tips book – has remained one of the great literary curios of the 20th century.

Despite accusations to the contrary, Amis maintains that he has never disowned the book, which stands awkwardly apart from his novels, screenplays, memoirs and other non-fiction. Still, while preparing this week’s unexpected reissue, the publishers Jonathan Cape discovered that the original files of Invasion of the Space Invaders had been unlovingly lost; the book had to be scanned in and rebuilt, pixel-by-pixel. In doing so, a picture of a lost era emerges, along with a valuable snapshot of early critical thinking about video games.

Neil writes: "Some 40 years since its release, Space Invaders is still relevant, still spawning clones and still ensuring that the gaming industry is in good health.

And at no point does it try not to be."
