Why should I read Fall Damage?

With so many great folks out there talking about video games, what makes Fall Damage different? Well, I take into account more than just the graphics and gameplay (although those definitely matter), but also any moral or philosophical elements at play. Games, like any form of entertainment or media, can shape our lives drastically. Sometimes those trickier aspects can be hard to see right away or, more commonly, easy to ignore in favor of “but it’s such a great game”.

I love video games and I’ve been playing them since I was six. I even met my husband in Destiny! But just as we examine literature or films for their deeper meanings and subtle messages, let’s do the same for video games.
