Summary
"In recent years, computer games have moved from the margins of popular culture to its center. This book explores the many ways computer games are used today: documenting important historical and cultural events, educating both children and adults; promoting commercial products; and serving as platforms for art, pornography, exercise, relaxation, pranks, and politics." --Publisher description
