The ECA Newsletter pointed me to this story from a site called Slightly Relevant. In it, the writer discusses how incredibly silly games are portrayed, specifically in prime time crime dramas. You could of course go much further than this. I watch House every week but they did a “game” episode once that will make you stare blankly at the screen for 45 minutes. So many people play games you have to wonder how hard it is for these people to consult someone with some knowledge of the medium. There’s some pretty funny stuff here and the videos are all worth watching, but the above clip from Life is priceless.
