Looking For Something to Play?

Just as I'm debating whether to jump down the rabbit hole known as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for my possible "one video game a year purchase" (okay, occasionally two), I see this fascinating short documentary about video games as a storytelling medium. If you've got a 10 minute break, I highly recommend this diversion of what makes games and gamers tick...

Video games are more important than they seem. They are a storytelling medium, a place for self-expression. The age-old tradition of gaming teaches us strategy, maneuvering, and the importance of making choices. From the cinematic experiences of mainstream gaming, to the hyper-personal environments of indie games, gaming activity defines the way we live and interact with information, and each other.
