Why We Need a Left Gamer Review?

Community HandWelcome to Left Gamer Review, a resource to critically engage, analyze, and review one of today’s fastest-growing entertainment media. Like cinema and music, video games can be art as well as trash, a commodity of leisure in which the creative and political efforts of people can be channeled. Because of the nature of commodities within capitalist society, the level of politics and creative input given to video games is incredibly uneven.

The purpose of the reviews and commentary on this site is to bring a new and fresh perspective by looking at the political content of games, while also taking into consideration the actual mechanics of the game itself–is it fun to play?
