ATG Quirkies: What if Virginia Woolf Designed Video Games Instead of Writing Novels?

We’ll probably never know the answer to that question. But there is little doubt that the intersection of video games and literature is actively being  discussed in certain circles.  In fact, the ELECTRIC LIT website just featured a conversation between and Graham Oliver and Whiting Award-winning writer Tony Tulathimutte.  During the conversation, Mr. Tulathimutte credits his interest in gaming with having “something to do with my desire to bend or break formal conventions in fiction.” But the real focus here is the amount of good writing about games that exists out there – coupled with the hope for a long-form literary criticism to eventually emerge.
