new online doc series on games and gaming @

September 14, 2010

The CBC is running an online series of video and texty bits on the culture of video gaming in Canada and abroad called Pushing Buttons: How Video Games are Changing our World.   So far it seems like pretty mainstream fare about the games industry and the game consumer.  Things such as “how games are made“, a piece about the rise of in-game advertising, there’s a great video time line about the history of arcade games from CBC’s video archives, and even a photo gallery on the Top 10 games made in Canada. ( I was surprised to see that Mass Effect 2 was developed in Edmonton and that B.C’s Quest for Tires was made in Ottawa… nice to see a bit of the history of Canadian game development).

I for one am glad to see a Canadian mainstream media outlet examining the culture of games and the effects it’s having on the world around us.  It’s a thing that people rarely consider.
