I thought it might be interesting to discuss interesting game related articles/blog posts/writing/etc that you find around the internet here.

I'll start us off:

"Games Aren't Taken Seriously Because Games Aren't Serious"
http://xanderkishblog.blogspot.com/2013/08/games-arent-taken-seriously-because.html

The title doesn't seem to actually quite relate to what they're actually talking about, which seems to be more about mainstream acclaim being hindered by different things that game players take for granted from experience that seem weird to non gamers. I've seen some discussion of this before, mostly defending them if I remember correctly.

In my opinion a certain level of basic knowledge is pretty much required in every medium, although videogames do require more than most, however I agree with the article that many of them are actually just bad design.

Not sure what to make of the last paragraph.
