Is A Game A Media Text?

Really enjoyed the debate today… 2 things:

a) I often take up a contrary position to enable discussion,
b) I’m delighted when you disagree with me! It means you’re not afraid to speak your mind, and,
c) Katy gets to open the first door of the Media Class advent calendar tomorrow…

So… here’s a poser for you. Is a game a media text? Is ‘news’ a suitable subject for a game? Have you ‘played’ September 12th? If not, try it, then think about what its purpose is…

There are no answers as such, just opinions, and I’d like to hear yours. Is Sept 12th merely a game, or do we need to apply our (media) analytical skills to it?

All comments gratefully received! 😉
