The Lester Bangs of Ludology

Clive Thompson on the video game criticism we’re all waiting for:

The game criticism of tomorrow won’t look anything like the stuff that Pauline Kael wrote. It’ll be some crazy, unruly spawn of sportswriting, gonzo journalism, analytic philosophy, memoir and investigative reporting. The Lester Bangs of gaming is going to be a philosopher of play.

Really great piece. Go read it.
