Thank you for visiting The Game is Dead.
My name is Edgar Birch.
I started this blog as a way of reviewing games with an analytic and in-depth lens. I am very interested in a discussion of games as an artistic medium, so I will not be rating the games I review. I enjoy games and I have my entire life. My goal for this blog is to review games that stand out as having artistic merit in the hopes of identifying games that can be considered art. This will be a very long-term project – the scope and focus may change as it progresses. I also plan on writing smaller articles in response to video game criticism.
Given the nature of this blog, I will be talking about parts of games that contain spoilers. If you have not completed a game you wish not to have spoiled for you, I suggest passing that article over.
I hope you enjoy my work, and feel free to comment on any articles you read.
