The Culture Of Gaming

The Culture Of Gaming

Aleks Krotoski examines how gaming is affecting our culture – by creating genuine works of art, as a way of transmitting ideas and by simple virtue of being the cultural medium many people spend most time attached to.

Computer or videogames have been around for 40 years, but the wider cultural implications have tended to be glossed over in favour of discussion of the size of the gaming economy and concerns about games' social impact.
