Game Slaves is an interesting book centered on video games. It makes you think about all of the little bad guys you kill in all of the violent video games you might play. It is kind of a “what if” type of book, and makes you think about video games in general.
The book’s main character, Phoenix, is the head of the elite team of video game NPC’s (non-playable character). These are the guys you blow up, stomp on or have to get around in any video game you play. When the team gets a new member, Dakota, nothing seems out of place. It’s when Dakota starts asking the wrong questions about their existence in their odd video game world that the other NPC’s start thinking.
Now the question is, was it any good? With a hard to guess plot, interesting dialog and great character development, it’s definitely a book I’d recommend to a friend. On the other hand, though, if you don’t like video games, or don’t like them, there might be a few ideas lost to you. It is definitely a book for the teenage gamer, girl or boy!
