Please bear with me as I think out loud for a moment:
1. I am engaging in a serious academic investigation of video games as a form of literature.
2. In order to do that, I will first need to address some basic, fundamental questions:
-What counts as literature?
-Is there enough of a correlation between video games and that definition to be able to say that 'video games are a form of literature'?
3. If video games cannot be considered literature, then do certain parts of video games have literary merit?
I am interested to hear any and all thoughts, blurbs and opinions, as I am thinking myself in circles trying to figure out how I am going to turn this into a Master's thesis.
Thanking you in advance, of course.
