Rev Rant: Fun isn’t enough

Recommended Videos

Every week, “Reverend” Anthony Burch talks about aspects of game design and gamer culture in his weekly “Rev Rant” video series.

I have to say, I’m flabbergasted as hell (and that’s really flabbergasted) that my last rant got as popular as it did.

It’s all downhill from here. 

This week’s rant is about the (to my mind) ludicrous assumption that games are essentially a medium based on “fun,” and that that is what they should be, no matter what. You can watch it after the jump, as always, or email me at reverendanthony[at]gmail[dott]com.
