Tadhg Kelly on why games don’t need traditional media: “Games are beautiful as they are”

EDGE - Speaking today at Edge Presents: Changing The Game ahead of the Evolve conference inLondon, videogame designer and Edge columnist Tadhg Kelly called on developers to reassert their position in the wider media world. Too often, developers are beholden to the standards of mainstream media such as literature and TV but, he warned, this desire to become part of the media institution means that games will never mature on their own terms. (Culture, Tadhg Kelly)
