    Games: Game Science

    Salut.

    "Welcome to the first issue of the first academic, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to computer game studies. This is a noteworthy occasion, and perhaps the most remarkable aspect is that such a journal has not been started before. As we know, there have been computer games for almost as long as there have been computers: SpaceWar, arguably the first modern game, turns forty this year, and
    commercially the genre has existed for three decades. So why not
    something like this before?"

    Oooh, looks interesting. Kev Smith will be pissed of that someone's beaten him to it though.
    Shall have to have a good browse when time allows.

    Interessting...

    One thing I think is constantly overlooked in narrative-game-theories is the root of many modern computer games in Pen and Paper Roleplaying.
    For example in Henry Jenkins Essay "Complete Freedom of Movement" (http://web.mit.edu/21fms/www/faculty/henry3/pub/complete.html one of the few things I have read and not only read about) he builds a very interessting theoretical framework, for computer games, completely ignoring P&P, but if you read the article you will see that the framework is perfectly suited for P&P.
