Idle Thumbs: American McGee’s Interview

Idle Thumbs is a gaming site written by people who are “…not cynical burnt-out industry veterans, or self righteous Japanese import snobs who want to show off how hardcore they are. We don’t believe replacing perfectly fine English words with French italicized ones is indicative of a higher intelligence. We’re also not “like The Onion, but for games”. Please. Our articles are real.”

Basically they are worth reading. Especially since they are running a cool Bad Day LA interview:

Idle Thumbs: American McGee’s Interview
Satire in games is nothing new. Just take Grand Theft Auto, with all its outrageous talk radio, Ammu-Nation outlets and pop culture parodies. Yet social commentary in games is usually in the details, not fused into their central premise. Bad Day LA’s satire isn’t merely decorative, it’s what the game is all about. – An Interview by Marek Bronstring
