Gamest Mook
ゲーメストムック

 
 
The Gamest Mook series is a collection of around 200 dedicated guide books from Shinseisha, publishers of the cult arcade game magazine Gamest.
A cross between 'Magazine' and 'Book', the format initially appeared back in 1990 as bonus 'Gamest Extra' issues of the main magazine. After 20-odd 'Extra' issues the Gamest Mook label began as a stand-alone series in late 1994 (although strangely 'Extra' issues would keep appearing occasionally).
Each issue is an in-depth analysis of a single game or subject, in which the Gamest editorial is given free reign to dissect every aspect of the game in question. From extensive art sections, illustrated move lists, in-depth strategies, official merchandise and fan contributions, each issue is a gold mine of information, strategies and trivia. The series quickly gained a massive international following - each issue is simply the best reference available for the game in question.
While the main 'Gamest Mook' series focuses on arcade games, by 1996 the 'Gamest Mook EX Series' began, a sub-series dedicated to home versions and console releases. The idea was sound, but Shinseisha got greedy and lost focus by releasing way too many guides for low-grade titles - one of the main factors that led up to to Gamest's eventual demise in September 1999.
A crying shame - because from KOF'94 to Third Strike, the Gamest Mook label is a guaranteed sign of quality. The series' flawless reputation lives on to this very day, survived in part by the Arcadia Extra series.

GAMEST MOOK
- OUT OF SERIES -
The following books were released outside of the main Gamest Mook series listed above.
Though most of them are labelled 'Gamest Mook', they do not have a distinctive number to go by.
There is no real explanation for this, and their release dates don't seem to match those
of the 'missing' Mooks of the main series: 137 & 141 (mid 1998) or 164 & 172 (late 1998)
