Friday Links

Here's the roundup for this week, kiddos:
  • From PopMatters, an analysis of the juxtaposition of idealized Americana and post-apocalyptic gloom in Fallout 3 and BioShock.
  • From the Infinite Lag Stupid Pun Department, Troy Goodfellow takes a close look at how camera zoom levels influence and/or are influenced by gameplay in strategy games.
  • From Cracked.com, 5 Reasons It's Still Not Cool to Admit You're a Gamer is one part bemusing and one part sobering.
  • From Gamasutra, an article on how we identify with and "become" the game characters we play as.
  • From Kotaku, a report on an odd study suggesting gamers are more inclined to be lucid dreamers. (Incidentally, your own Humble Narrator here is one!)
And this week, a very special non-game-related link:
