Celebrating the Library In Video Games

Mike says, "I’ve written before about how video games are becoming a core part of library collections, saying that it’s an exciting prospect to consider that our favorite hobby has a place on the shelf alongside classics of other formats. It really is a big deal that games are achieving this level of inclusion, particularly considering the relatively young age of the format. While it is very pleasing to see video games being represented positively in libraries, one the question I have is whether libraries are well-represented in video games. I’m going to be discussing a few notable ones with a little help from Melvil Dewey, legendary librarian and creator of the Dewey Decimal System." (Culture, Final Fantasy IX, Halo: Combat Evolved, Minecraft, PC, PS2, PS3, The Secret of Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge Special Edition, Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War, Xbox 360)

The Dewey Decimal game would be really mediocre. I would expect it to be too much 3D platforming with a bad camera.

I was considering different kinds of library minigames that would be fun...maybe that's a feature for another day.
