Downloadable Games: The EPs of the Video Game Industry

EPs, or extended play records, are collections of music that are longer than singles but shorter than full-length albums. They're both brief samplers of a band and an opportunity for artists to try something new and different. Garrett Martin of Joystick Division looks at how downloadable games like Bastion and Trenched are like EPs, and how that comparison points out differences and similarities between the music and video game industries. (Bastion, Culture, Double Fine, PS3, Slam Bolt Scrappers, Trenched, Wii, Xbox 360)
