Sharing an essay by Leigh Alexander, from the Gamasutra website: The tragedy of Grand Theft Auto V

    I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it
    yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.

      WordPress (the blogging platform I use) has “themes,” or formatted page designed that are customizable for non-computer experts like me. This particular “theme” is called Twenty Ten (I’ve no idea why).

    Interesting and almost existential perspective on GTAV. I never thought to look at these kinds of games in metaphysical terms, but it was a pretty enlightening essay.
