books have survived the advent of film, television and rock and roll ... and novels of the future can only be enriched by the likes of Grand Theft Auto

was the generation of rock and roll hotel lasted from the anguish of the death of Steve Jobs (former abandoned all ethics against-culture was informed by the rock ' n'roll, and a love of Dylan and the Beatles, among others). The music was important for us was how we define and that's what made us different from our parents, who felt alienated by their volume, nihilism, hedonism and the anti-authoritarian.

But now everything has come to an end. My kids can not disturb me in the music - I'm more likely to annoy people by saying that everything has been done before, and is not really different from what I heard when I was his age. Modern music is a great buffet that modern children can choose all the songs they like about the last 50 years. Everything is accessible and there is nothing new. The music is not as important more -. Or so it seems

time my children are part of the digital generation, born from the beep-beep-beep of Space Invaders and 80 electro-pop. His world revolves around the chip. If you buy a new computer, you can take the box, plug it in and instantly sat there like Captain Kirk, in command of a powerful machine that can take you anywhere in the universe. A modern computer can be your office, your communication device, the reference library, you can listen to music on it, you can make music ... and, of course, you can play.

For my children, computer games are the most important thing in the world. In the same way that we could wait for the new album by the Rolling Stones and the Clash last one, my children now wait expectantly for the new simulation of FIFA, or the latest Gears of War, and the amount of time they have in these games is terrifying that someone of my generation.

is the important part, though. Thus, he rebelled. So do not I did when I was your age. I play many games, but games are not my life completely.

For my children, games are more important than television, movies, music and books. Because, of course, games to incorporate all the elements so completely and so seductive.

OK, I must stop now and say I have no daughters. Maybe girls are different? I know that games are an important part of your world (although the best-selling and most popular games of all time like the Sims and Farmville are those that appeal to girls more than boys). And speaking purely subjective, my wife is obsessed with Angry Birds and wings. The games do not go far, just going to become more immersive, more attractive and more time-consuming. They take over. So I was delighted when I asked a judge for the award GameCity again.

GameCity festival is a computer game which is held annually in Nottingham, and award significant is the first of its kind. The idea is to get the games from the hand of the nerds and experts from industry and the granting of cultural condition for music, movies or books. The aim is partly to find a way to talk about the games, to find a language to be with the language of film or literary criticism, but also to play respectable and accessible to non-game-play the audience.

The range of judges, including the musician Nitin Sawhney, the actress Frances Barber and Labour MP Tom Watson, reflects this ideal, coming as it did in the fields of music, literature , theater, academia, politics and journalism. That we were asked to do was find a game you can show someone who had never played anything before and say, "Look at this: this is what we have missed is what that games are capable of. " was an interesting choice from the list was compiled from suggestions from the industry itself, and its purpose was perhaps too much in games of nerds. It is interesting that none of the mega-blockbuster franchise on the list. No Grand Theft Auto or Halo, or Red Dead Redemption, the murderer or not Creed Call of Duty (in some cases because they are inconsistent with awards). It was a shame that there was no role-playing (RPG) with great stories to tell and complex worlds to explore - nothing to do with LA Noire to really show beginners everything the modern games are capable of. There was a feeling that the industry had made the list may have been trying too hard to be clever.


The best games have taken things in books (where computer games, without Tolkien, for example?) And any writer worth the name should be made by the games. What are the books that do not want to slavishly reproduce the experience of playing a game because, well, why not go play a game instead? Similarly, you do not want a game that gets bogged down with endless cut scenes and has a very rigid, so that reading. There is a more intelligent and more elegant them, as evidenced by the brilliant GTA saga.
