Day 5: Play

Friday 12 August, with Bajo (Steven O'Donnell) and Hex (Stephanie Bendixsen)


Video games have been part of our leisure time and social lives for more than 40 years. Over that time they have evolved in complexity, in terms of aesthetics, narrative, and the technology that drives them. What games do we play today and what do they say about us? How can we preserve these games and our social interactions with them, and why is this important?

Watch Good Game's Bajo and Hex discuss the evolution of video games, and why games are an artform worthy of preservation.
