Wired News: Forget films, games do Sci-Fi best

Wired News: Forget films, games do Sci-Fi best.

A topic for discussion -  "games are beginning to rival film -- and even eclipse it -- as the prime vehicle for sci-fi and fantasy.  Perhaps this shift is taking place because games have an inherent affinity with sci-fi and fantasy. Those genres are based on what-if premises; they're the literary version of the Sim, the author as world-builder."

This smart writer also has a blog with interesting stuff - collision detection: Do iPods help Olympic athletes perform better?  -  Why Conservatives hate MP3 players.  -  Good Stuff.
