discourse intensity

by Andrew Stern · , 3:33 am

Thanks to the link from Greg Costikyan’s latest post, I just discovered the intense debates underway on the Games Research Network listserv, recently established by DiGRA. Lately the discussions there have revived classic debates such as “what is interactivity” and “ludology vs. narratology”, as well as debating lots of other really interesting new topics and ideas contributed by some very bright people. Requires registration.

Meanwhile, a parallel debate apparently continues to rage down-under at DAC over the identity of ludologists.

Damn there’s a lot to read on the web these days.
