  1. GTA V - Graphics Study - Adrian Courrèges

    Even not understanding much of it, it’s amazing to see what goes into rendering a single frame of GTA V. (via @timoarnall a while back)

  2. Scroll Back: The Theory and Practice of Cameras in Side-Scrollers

    I haven’t even read half of this but it’s so good. A really detailed and interesting look at a single feature of video games, that I’d barely thought about before, with loads of animated GIF examples. (via Infovore)

  3. ESPN - OTL: The Franchise - E-ticket

    I like American football but have never played Madden (until trying the demo this evening). I enjoyed this article about the history of the game, and trying to make the first version work on early consoles.

  4. Charlie Brooker: why I love video games | Technology | The Guardian

    Not just interesting on why games are good, but on exactly how non-games-players get frustrated with them. Would be good to talk about that more.

  5. ‘Grand,’ but No ‘Godfather’ -

    On why ‘Grand Theft Auto IV’ is very good but isn’t great art in the way the best films are. (via Infovore)

  6. DadHacker » Blog Archive » Donkey Kong and Me

    Lovely early days of computing story about the guy who wrote Donkey Kong for the Atari 400/800 home computer. (via Kottke)
