Fullbright: Being There is an essay about Video Games as a medium and it's primary strengths.
Interesting thoughts in the essay.
- Literature excels at exploring the internal (psychological, subjective) aspects of a character's personal experiences and memories.
- Film excels at conveying narrative via a precisely authored sequence of meaningful moments in time.
- And video games excel at fostering the experience of being in a particular place via direct inhabitation of an autonomous agent.
