NPR Discusses The Culture Of Gaming


Posted January 7, 2011 - By Nikole Zivalich


NPR's On the Media has another episodes in their series about the video game industry. On this edition called The Culture of Gaming Brooke Gladstone speaks with Jamin Brophy-Warren, an editor for Kill Screen, Nicholson Baker, a novelist and Tom Bissell, the author of "Extra Lives: Why Video Games Matter." They each talk about their own experience with video games. Are video games art or are they technological products? Listen to the broadcast for yourself.
"Do you walk away or do you kill him? Your impulse is to show him mercy because you're a human being but, at the same time, you can't forget what Niko has sort of suffered because of this guy. That is the kind of storytelling that I love about games. It actually gives you this weird and often very troubling kind of agency. And fiction can't do that, movies can't do that. That's the kind of things that I love about games, is those moments of just jaw-dropping scary freedom."
