Re: Games: A New Critical Approach
I love your post, just the one comment/criticism I have (and sorry if this already has been said I haven't read all of the replies to this) is about the ambiguity. I think there's much more to it than what you said...the first thing that came to mind when I saw the word before reading the paragraph was that you were going to tie it into the real world. As a bit of a poet myself, to me that is what the ambiguity comment means when applying to my poetry. As an example, my poem about a stream isn't really about a stream, it's about how it doesn't matter if something is artificial or not because either way it is beautiful and nothing can invalidate that. In the same manner a game can be ambiguous in talking about the fictional characters and story but tie it into the real world in one way or another.
