TWiR: “If Films Were Reviewed Like Video Games”

This little piece made the rounds last week, and it’s a good reminder about the state of the game industry.

Years ago I met a video game journalist named David Thomas. He’s spent a good deal of time trying to create a movement amongst the top journalists who covered games (back when the media covered games as journalism) to move towards a more classic approach to reviews.

Ultimately David left journalism, went back to get his PhD, and now does explores how games might transform education. When I read that piece on Something Awful’s site, though, I had flashbacks to early 2003 when game journalism almost became literary.

I just spent the last week editing a few chapters with Richard Garriott and Sierra On-Line so I was in the right mood when I came across this Kickstarter documentary project.
