I’ve already admitted I came in too late to be hooked by games.
However, I recognize their importance to people.
Even Douglas Rushkoff is involved with a game.
With tens and tens of millions of people playing them worldwide — instead of reading! — it’d be thick of us to ignore what’s going on.
Which makes me wonder: At any book conference, has anyone from the games industry ever been invited to speak, to deconstruct and explain what makes their business work? And how publishing might be able to adapt some aspects of its success?
