Schtick 'Em Up: The Shooter Gets Weird from 1UP.com

Shooters are the foundation of the video game industry, dating back all the way to the 1960's with Steve Russell's classic Spacewar. Since that time, the genre has been responsible for bringing much depth to the world of interactive entertainment, popularizing vital concepts like the power-up and the end-of-level boss which are still used in many of today's greatest games.

Raph’s Website » Are single-player games doomed?

The entire video game industry’s history thus far has been an aberration. It has been a mutant monster only made possible by unconnected computers. People always play games together. All of you learned to play games with each other. When you were kids, you played tag, tea parties, cops and robbers, what have you. The single-player game is a strange mutant monster which has only existed for 21 years and is about to go away because it is unnatural and abnormal.

GameDAILY: Porn Stars Love Video Games

"Most times when I see an interview on a game website all I can think is, "What a load of crap"! It's not that the information is bad per se, but videogame magazines and websites are content to interview the same damn people year after year and they always say the same things. Like, I get it. I know that most NFL players carry copies of Madden NFL 06 with them like drunks carry flasks. I get it. I'm aware that Brooke Burke just loves Need for Speed, but only because she's practically married to Electronic Arts. "

Gamasutra - Interview - "Rodney Greenblat, The Mother Of Sony's Almost Mario"

(via)
Ten years ago, Sony brought three dimensions, as well as the concept of "maturity", to the video gaming masses. And yet, when many people think back to the "PlayStation era", a hyper realistic character in a 3D landscape doesn't necessarily come to mind. Instead, they think of a flat cartoony dog that could rap.

Music video game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A music video game, also commonly known as a music game, rhythm action game, or rhythm game, is a type of video game where the gameplay is oriented almost entirely around the player's ability to follow a musical beat and stay with the rhythm of the game's soundtrack. Since the game play for this type of game is largely aural rather than visual, this type of game is similar to audio games. However, music games generally require a visual component as well.

Something Awful

(via)
Everyone can relate to the experience of purchasing a popular video game title and finding out the gameplay is a huge pile of crap. This was especially true of old Nintendo games, where were often just violent adventures in trying to get a vaguely human-shaped set of blocks to jump over a pit. This trend of awful gameplay and stories continues to this day, thanks in part to thousands of game designers without any vision whatsoever. This week the Something Awful Forum Goons do some community service and re-title games in a more honest manner.
