Now THAT is a review

From KG:
"Review of Quantic Dream’s fascinating Fahrenheit which I wrote for The Guardian. Long-form review, of about 1000 words. There’s also some additional material I wrote about the games which lead to Fahrenheit - Omnikron, Shenmue, Grim Fandango and The Longest Journey."

For a respected national newspaper to run a full-page review of a videogame, for no other reason that it’s a new videogame that’s worth talking about is completely unprecedented. While it’s experimental at the moment, it’s an ongoing thing. Long-form intelligent writing about videogames, weekly, exactly the same way they’d cover other pop-artefact. If you want to talk about cultural acceptance of games, this is as big a step as there’s ever been.
