Detailed, critical writing on some milestone games from Critical Distance

Critical Distance has some excellent, detailed pieces linking to interesting writing on some particularly significant games. These are well worth a read if you have any interest in gaming, and could be useful for MEST3 case studies.

Grand Theft Auto IV – the game that every media student writes about if they write about games. Nowhere near as interesting as…

Bioshock – one of my personal favourites, I bought my Xbox 360 to play this, having loved System Shock, the spiritual predecessor. A beautifully realised game world and some interesting moral choices, although perhaps not as nuanced as they could be.

Fallout 3 – another personal favourite, one of the greatest games I have ever played, and one with much more openneness and moral freedom than pretty much anything else.
