Overview

Welcome.

My name is Alex and I’m a college student (soon to be recent graduate) in computer science.

What I hope to do with this blog is write regularly about video games and, more specifically, stories in and storytelling with video games. I’ve read some things recently that suggest that games shouldn’t be used for telling stories, and aren’t inherently a storytelling medium, but I disagree. Why I disagree is something I’ll be continually writing about here, as well as examining stories in specific games, and more, to the best of my ability.

In short, I’ll be trying to look at games critically, rather than reviewing them.

First up will be a summary and thoughts on a session at SIGCSE 2008 on using games as projects in the computer science curriculum.
