New Games Journalism

A somewhat old article, but I’m cleaning out a few of my saved links…

The New York Times surprises me a bit with some intensely interesting references to New Games Journalism sprouting up in the UK and hopefully other places soon. It is a mode of video game description and review skipping over specification and impression and cutting right to the human heart of the thing, vignettes of drama played out in well written and intensely personal essays.

The link they don’t give directly, presumably because their publishing policy forbids use of the n-word (not unreasonable, be even inside a link?), is right here.
