Visions of Gamepocalypse
I'm fresh out of Inception and still grappling with what to make of it. For one...what? For two, I'm tending to agree with the web mumblings on the film's video game ties. The snow scene? I don't play Modern Warfare 2, but if I walked into the theater while those faceless-snow-warriors-on-skis were shooting at some undefined building in the middle of some undefined mountains, I would think I was in a teenage boy's video game lair.
Video games are increasingly an integral part of our cultural consciousness and tonight's lecture at YBCA is dedicated to this very topic.
