As a casual gamer and someone who has followed developments in the industry as a quest for legimitacy, this book read as a historical primer for the most part. The author weakly tried to incorporate the philosophical aspects of videogames into her work, but ended up sounded forced and blaise. For the most part, this book read as hero worship, but throughout, the comments that Will Wright contributed as the developer of the sims games and most recently spore were particularly enlightening.
