The State of [Computer Game] Criticism

The game press does a piss-poor job of covering the culture of games — from Games That Teach to local LAN parties. Instead, the delve into the intricate details of each game — which is clearly important from a game play standpoint. However, the culture at large is at least as important as the game play. If you read the newspaper, you’ll find stories that cover a wide variety of subjects. Business stories aren’t only about stocks. Sports stories aren’t only about the games. Yet, the game press really focuses on game play. —wiredbeat2000
