Artsy Farsty Party

Post by runBAMrunfaster on Wed Apr 10, 2013 5:46 am

Hey doods,
Did you know I write things? Did you know that when I write things, I make it about video games whenever possible? Did you know I wrote a ten page essay last night about the literary validity of video games, hence me not being on last night (This night was a much lamer excuse, I went out with a friend)? It's relatively long and probably also kind of dense, being relatively-high college level and also a literature essay so a little dry, but I tried to keep things as interesting as possible.

FAIR WARNING: I spoil the ending of not one, not two, but THREE games in this essay; the games being Bastion by Supergiant Games, Bioshock by Irrational Games, and Braid by Johnathan Blow. If you haven't played those games, I suggest you skip paragraphs 11 and 12 for Bastion, the beginning of 13 for Braid, and the entierty of 13 for Bioshock. You're missing out though cause that's also a really meaty part of the essay so proceed at your own risk.

I'll be interested to see your thoughts, if any. I know Frew among us is also an amateur game scholar but if anyone else's got an opinion, then by all means share it.


Love,
