Self promo: NPR interviews me about “political video games”

NPR interviewed me about a story I wrote for Slate a few weeks ago — on the rise of video games as social commentary.

In over six years of being interviewed about video games and their social impact, this is hands-down the single smartest interview I’ve ever participated in. No weird scare tactics about “video games turning our kids into zombies,” no teary handwringing about “America in peril” — just really smart questions. Superb journalism.
