You might remember me talking about the book American Nerd last year.  I thought it was OK, but not great, and I wrote a review to that extent on Amazon.  I complained about the sections of the book dealing with videogames, and a user replied to my review today with the following:

Did you seriously use 3/4’s of your review explaining about Halo’s multiplayer?

Incidentally, I’ll mention that the highest levels of Starcraft performance cannot be achieved over any significant distance – when you’re averaging a click every 0.15s, latency becomes a significant consideration. The matches in Korea generally have special networking designed to get latency as low as possible.
