Snark by Snarkwest: Can Video Games Evoke Emotion?
I expect that the answer to this question is a bit more nuanced than “clearly so.”
“The subtext is, of course, ‘Can video games approach literature?'”
Exactly right, and kind of like the initial question, I think the answer is already a fairly clear yes, and that the task for us is to start delineating how.
Gotta say, I’m liking this format: live-chat-as-a-widget-to-which-one-can-then-reply. This is approaching the ideal of Kenneth Burke’s “eternal conversation.”
But I still wish I could just *be* at SXSW so I didn’t need this. 🙂

The title, it should be said, is a misnomer. You’ll see.
