The Lester Bangs of Video Games

Chuck Klosterman essay in Esquire on the dearth of serious video game criticism. Then see also this interview with Klosterman at GameSpot, where he further explains his point:

In other words there’s no one writing about video games who is of interest to people who aren’t actively playing them. I mean you look at film in the 1970s — there were people writing about film who were being read by people who had no intention of seeing those movies.
