Video games matter

Video games matter

Brendan Keogh writes for The Conversation on how the recent Freeplay Independent Games Festival  held last week should be used to remind us that video games matter and are culturally significant.

Brendan writes  ‘……Freeplay is about celebrating videogames as cultural artefacts, and the playing of videogames as a culturally significant activity.

And, frankly, videogames are culturally significant. Videogames are cultural. Videogames are political. Videogames are art. Videogames are not somehow distinct from or purely unique from other cultural forms that surround them. Instead they are connected to other cultural/creative forms in a variety of ways.’
