The book on video games

From: Daniel Macpherson

I found a good book relating to the continuing video games debate. It's called "Everything Bad is Good for You" by Steven Johnson. It basically says that popular culture (especially video games) is beneficial to people and the stigma attached to popular culture is only because we are viewing it through outdated measures. Analysts put too much focus on the meaning of popular culture but not enough on what popular culture actually does. And what it does is a very complex cognitive process.
