A particularly interesting interview on the emotional and intellectual stimulation provided by games.
“Jenova Chen is on a crusade to mature videogames, but he is not cribbing from The Sopranos. The creative director of thatgamecompany – the indie game studio incubated within Sony Santa Monica – wants to expand the popular definition of videogame by infusing games with emotionally and intellectually charged content.

In the aftermath of launch, Chen discusses why the games industry needs to expand its emotional range, the rise of independent developers, and why he doesn’t want to create big budget blockbuster.”
