[VW] Reviewing Computer Games

I noticed this post on These Damned Machines Are Killing Me about a week ago. It talks about the flaws of computer game reviews. (Its sequel, I didn’t find so interesting.)

Now there’s been a response, an extension really, to that from Gamesblog at the Guardian. It links to a review, “Bow, Nigger” – a gripping piece of writing dealing with racism, good vs evil and zen in a Jedi Knights II duel. Then Gamesblog talks about the mercantile focus of most game mags and their focus on the new and the now.
