My article comparing video games to medieval morality plays is now up on The Escapist. Read it and enjoy! I originally had the title “To Hell and Back: Videogames as Morality Plays,” which is infinitely more awesome, but it didn’t fit in the space provided. Oh, well.
Summary: “Contemporary videogames like Doom 3 or the God of War series have some surprising similarities to medieval morality plays. Jeremiah Leif Johnson believes that such games should enter the discussion of games as art.”
I’ve also been collecting my thoughts for a good post for my GameSpot blog, which should be up by the end of the week.
