I pre-ordered the book 50 Years of Text Games and you can, too. It's a book of 50+ essays about computer games; the author chose one game to write about per year from 1971 to 2020. If that has you thinking "oh hey that sounds kind of familiar maybe?" some years back, I was reading early drafts of those essays which were newsletter posts at the time. They were pretty interesting. Some were about games I'd already played, and were good for nostalgia; some were about games I hadn't played, and were good for learning. If you're not sure whether you're interested, The book's website has a list of the written-about games and a link to the newsletter where you can read the posts that got me hooked.
