Wow, Nottingham GameCity has been mentioned in the Observer
“GameCity is a computer games festival held annually in Nottingham, and the prize is the first major one of it’s type. The idea is to lift games out of the nerds and industry insiders and award them the cultural status of music, film or books. The aim is partly to find a way of talking about games, to find a language to stand alongside the language of film or literary criticism, but it is also to make games respectable and accessible to the non-games-playing public”
The article is a page length in viewpoint…and is by Charlie Higson.
The GamesCity prize went to Minecraft.
