Noticed an interesting link on Reddit last night. The New Yorker has published a piece entitled “The Psychology of First-Person-Shooter Games“, in which the author, Maria Konnikova, considers the reasons why guys and gals like us enjoy FPS games.
I had thought it was just about fragging your mates, but Ms Konnikova is an internationally renown clever-clogs with some interesting thoughts on why the genre keeps us coming back for more.
Well worth a read, if only to make you feel better about going ‘pew pew pew’ most evenings.
