Ep. 2 – “Video Games”
Welcome to episode two! In the first segment, Brian and Josh discuss a brief history of the video game industry; from it’s hacker beginnings through to the console wars of the ’90s, and up to modern day virtual reality. While covering the history of video games, the guys take pause during each ‘era’ to talk about the controversy that surrounded them. From video game violence, to MMO addiction, no stone is left unturned.
During the second segment the big questions are asked; ‘Are video games art?’ , ‘What kind of art are they?’ , and ‘Why is it important that video games be considered art?’
All this and more!
