Video Game Poetry
When I was growing up, my parents considered my video game playing a total waste of time unless it was specifically an educational tool disguised as a game, like Sesame Street A-B-C. Nowadays, I’d like to believe that as gamer kids become parents themselves, this attitude is changing. Video games are not only educational tools (problem solving, puzzles, strategy) but also great art (graphics, music, game play).
Today, while surfing the net, I saw Topless Robot featured a list of original poems found in video games and many of them are really good, like really really good. As someone who enjoyed all of the games on this list, I’d like to think I’m a bit wiser today thanks to the art I experienced as a youngin. I mean, I learned an encyclopedia worth from Bubble Bobble!
