Lucky That Way: Creating the Games Millions Play

"Lucky That Way" by Brad Fregger is a non-fiction title that showcased his role as production manager at Atari and Activision (as well as other game production companies), producing titles like Shanghai, Pitfall II, Solitaire Royale, and Ishido. Not many know Brad was responsible for producing the most popular computer game in history: Solitaire Royale (which led to the creation of computer solitaire we find on all PC's today). It's a very interesting read about his work in producing games when the industry was at its beginnings. Beneath the achievements in the industry, Brad promotes a simple philosophy of "seizing the moment." He highlights that many of his achievements came after seizing an opportunity that was before him, he just had to realize it. In short, this title is a interesting glimpse at some of the most popular retro games of the past, and a lesson that everyone can practice in their lives: seize the moment.
