Taking Video Games Seriously
Taking Video Games Seriously is a discussion panel which will be held Monday January 25th from 6:30 pm in Westminster Hall in London. The panel will address how we should be looking at gaming and virtual worlds as a medium.
Leading the discussion will be:
- Tom Chatfield, senior editor at Prospect magazine, and author of Fun Inc, a major new book on the social importance of video games, published by Virgin Books on 14th January.
- Philip Oliver, CEO of Blitz Games, one of Britain’s largest independent games developers, and one of its most radical in pursuing the serious and innovative uses of games. With his brother, Philip is one of the founding fathers of the British games industry.
- Sam Leith is a cultural critic and author, and columnist for The Guardian, The Evening Standard and Prospect. A previous books editor at the Daily Telegraph, he has a particular interest in popular culture and emerging technologies, and writes regularly on video games.
