Do yourself a favor and read this article


I don't know how many of your remember that thread at Nsider that compared books and games, but after reading that, I'm preparing a follow-up thread based on that article (sorry, couldn't resist).

HOWEVER, the subject is really touchy (the consequences of having "serious games") and last time it was bought up it caused a flame war. That's why I want you to read it and start arranging your thoughts - the thread needs intelligent replies pronto!

In any case, PLEASE, just read that article. Wait to long and you might found yourself playing the rticle isntead of reading it.

That article as brought to my attention by JETK from Nsider
