I actually really enjoy coffee table books like these (not because I agree with what their subjective top lists are), but because I discover lots of interesting games (or books or movies) I've never heard of. What was the #1 Atari 2600 game they chose? (and c64 and Apple II if you remember?)

IMO, arcade Star Wars should be removed because without the Star Wars IP to provide the nostalgic tingle, all that's left is a dull on-rails shooter. For a vector-based space epic, I'd take Major Havoc any day of the week over Star Wars.
Deduct: Bomb Jack
Add: Omega Race
Add: Any number of horizontal shooters... Salamander sucks

Props for them including Raiden and DoDonPachi. I wouldn't think they would be obvious choices, but they're important within their genre and deserve to be on the list.
Thoughts on some exclusions:
All that being said, I recognize that it's virtually impossible to put together a list that is agreeable to everybody. But come on...they had 1001 slots and skipped all of these in favor of "42 All Time Classics," Zuma, and Zack & Wiki? That's a little too arbitrary for me.

Missing Atari 8 bit Computer 'Star Raiders', a killer-app game (software selling hardware) , big fail.
Actually missing many Apple/Atari computer classics which should've been included.
But this book was made by an English man who grew up on lacklustre Spectrum games, Tony Mott idiot
