Gaming’s Toughest Questions

Posted by liuqahs15 on October 31, 2009

coverSo if you don’t know, I’m writing for Game Mode, Pakistan’s first ever video games magazine. Yeah it sounds crazy, but it’s a cool new place to toss some fresh ideas. Here’s the first graph.

To simplify matters without much flowery language, to game is to experience. What we experience varies specifically from game to game, but generally each game we play is the result of a great many efforts finding some form of cohesion, and being laid in our hands via a controller. So, now that we’ve knocked down two questions already—those being what it means to game and what we experience when we game—we’ve still got two more to confront: how do we choose which games to experience, and why do we choose to experience them at all?

Get a copy of Game Mode for the rest.
