A new issue of the Game Studies journal has been published. Read it at http://gamestudies.org/1402

In particular, there’s a paper (A Too-Coherent World: Game Studies and the Myth of “Narrative” Media) by Edward Wesp that is really interesting. From its abstract: “This article revisits Jesper’ Juul’s oft-cited argument about video games’ “incoherent” fictional worlds to argue for a more open relationship between the study of video games and other media, based on the recognition that all media have complex relationships with the narratives and fictions they convey”.
