So I was listening to a podcast earlier today and the subject came up that a popular YouTube personality (Pat the NES Punk) had published a book titled Ultimate Nintendo: Guide to the NES Library (1985-1995) that covers every game published for the NES in North America during the system's retail lifespan, and it got me wondering if similar books had ever been published covering the libraries of other systems?

For instance, I'd love to get books covering the complete libraries of the Game Boy and Sega Genesis if such books exist. Are there any other books like Ultimate Nintendo out there or is the NES the only system to receive a complete literary compendium?

Not out, but he is publishing this or next year the same thing, but for SNES.  Might as well put that on a want list.  I'd like to get the book but $60 seems a bit extreme, so I wonder if it can be had for reasonably less as it would be a fun read.

I'm interested in his book, but the shipping to Canada is nuts. He needs a reseller in Canada.

I have the book. Bought it from Pat himself at Retropalooza last year. Its pretty good, but for the most part, not a sit down and read kind of book. There are a few sections written out like little articles, but most of the book is pages and pages of reviews. Great for reference though.
