Pixels Politics and Play:Digital Video Games as Social Commentry by Rafael Fajardo

I discovered this essay on Intelligent agent an online magazine edited by Patrick Lichty, dedicated to new media art and culture: Latest Issue: 3D/VR, Gaming, and Mobility.

The essay is about Crosser™ and La Migra™ two art games which give the players persectives on the opposing experiences of border crossers and border controllers. Some very interesting stuff about the 'insufficiencies of game theory' in developing truly reflective models of human behaviour and realpolitik at borders. Also the importance of enticement, joy and humour in didactic games.

The appendix also lists some links to more didactic games.
