The Video Game Theory Reader discussed

I was getting ready to sit down and write my review for The Video Game Theory Reader and I thought I’d look around and see what others have said about it. I ran across a message board with some interesting reviews of some of the articles over at Matt Barton’s site.

As for my own thoughts on the book, let me just say that it is an interesting book. A bit too film based for my tastes. Like any anthogy, a couple articles rock, a few are just average and the rest are just lame. There are a couple more lame articles than I would like, but overall it is worth reading.

more coming…

    Hiya. Just thought I’d remark that the VGTR is one of the best I’ve seen, even though most of the authors are coming from film theory–hey, works for me a lot better than the lit theory folks.

    Let me know if you’d like me to review the review. 😉
