<p>Earlier this year, Blake J. Harris released <em>Console Wars</em>, a history of the battle between Sega and Nintendo that dominated the early 1990s. The book functions as somewhat of a spiritual sequel to <em>Game Over</em>, which recounted the rise of Nintendo in the 1980s. <em>Console Wars </em>picks up where that left off, centering largely on Sega's early struggles against Nintendo's iron grip on the US market, and on former Sega of America CEO Tom Kalinske. It's through the eyes of Kalinske that we learn how Sega went from underdog to industry titan and back again in the span of one console generation.</p> <p>Follow along as we highlight some of the biggest moments of the now-famous fight between Sega and Nintendo.</p>
