Game Collecting Fish Stories

Pics or it didn’t happen

Despite the fact that I don’t think I’ve ever actually played an actual fishing videogame on purpose (and holy carp, are there a lot of them), I certainly have “fish stories” — you know, legendary tales of great catches, and the ones that got away — about videogame collecting.

When I grabbed it, though, and realized it was a massive volume boasting over 400 pages, it was a no-brainer. Although I must say that by page 15, it was already worth my money.
