Discussionist: Video game stuff

Things about games that aren't games.

Today’s topic isn’t about video games themselves as such – not that software many of us indulge in – but the mediums which tap into video game culture and lore.

From the Resident Evil films – which, admittedly, are a guilty pleasure of mine – to Scott Pilgrim and the wonderful Sword Art Online, video games have since spanned far beyond their inherent forms.

So, we ask: what video game novels, films, bands – or whatever else – do you indulge in when not playing the games themselves? If you indulge in novels to understand your knowledge of a particular lore, what is it about that world, that universe, that compels you to do so?

Or perhaps you simply want to recommend something to others. Please, feel free to do so.

Let us know below, folks.
