Guns with an Agenda

by Noah Wardrip-Fruin · , 12:14 am

Ian Bogost kicks off his new column — “Games with an Agenda” — with a familiar picture of yours truly toting a rather large rifle. What follows is a thoughtful discussion of the NRA’s game development work and the representation of guns in games generally. The column’s publisher is Serious Games Source, the serious games outlet of CMP’s website Gamasutra. Stay tuned for next week, when Gonzalo Frasca’s column — “Playing with Fire” — debuts in the same place. Gonzalo and Ian will publish their columns on alternating weeks, and the agenda is sure to get heated.
