Losing to Win: Spec Ops and Tragedy in Video Games

Finally got the chance to play through Spec Ops: The Line (thanks, Isaac). It is really good, like Bioshock good as far as dealing with its themes in a really interesting and thoughtful way.

The game got me thinking again about video games and how they tend to fit into the broadest literary categories (tragedy and comedy), so I'm talking in part about Pac-Man as a tragic hero once again (which I always find amusing).
