The cover and feature article in this week's Christian Science Monitor is about the video gaming industry and gamers. It is aimed at nongamers to help them understand how big this industry is and how many play video games and is this a bad thing, a good thing and what might we expect in the future. In the intro to the article it makes this statement about Skyrim to capture attention:
Like most CSM feature articles, it is well researched, thoughtful and even handed. I was particularly interested in the discussion of whether video games can rise to level of an art form as film has.
Take a look. It is the best overall article for the general public about gaming that I have seen anywhere. You can find it here: http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/S.....-many-play
Imagine life with no hypothetical situations.
Thanks for sharing this, Kay, and I'm really glad to hear it. I've seen some great, thoughtful, well-researched articles about gaming in The Economist recently too. You'd think we'd be past this now, but I'm still always so gratified to see that a "mainstream" news source has take the time to study the medium and its consumers and provide effective information about it.
And that stat about Skyrim is pretty amazing, when you think about it.
Kudos to CSM for handling this rightly, and thoughtfully.
Life is the misery we endure between disappointments.
