This interesting video came into my inbox during the week courtesy of Stephen Downes OLDaily newsletter. It is a video from PBS arts which, in 7 minutes, looks at the history and reasons behind the different types of games that are available as well as the different designs and intentions of their creators.

This video even comes with an endorsement from Dean Groom, CEGSA conference 2009 keynote speaker. He writes, “There are a lot of videos about games – this one is an excellent blend of theory and culture.

Let’s see what you think and feel free to leave a comment below of your thoughts.
