The Broken Paragon is a collection of 24 essays and articles about innovations in the video game industry. Each paper is informative but easy-to-read, educational but engaging.
Video games' developers and contributors often include Oscar-winning and -nominated actors and musical composers. However, due to the long-term criticism that all new art media have faced (including opera and film), many skeptics are reluctant to offer video games respect where they deserve. The Broken Paragon expedites this respect by deconstructing and analyzing games from a critical perspective. By writing and collecting essays that are professional and academic-based, but still easy for newcomers to read, author jonny Lupsha hopes to further the discussion of this fascinating new art form and storytelling medium.
Topics include game adaptations of classic literature, groundbreaking audio and tech design, the evolution of choice-based gaming and much more. Just some of the games discussed and analyzed include the Silent Hill series, Mass Effect, The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Telltale Games' The Walking Dead, Heavy Rain, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Catherine, Zen Pinball 2 and Thomas Was Alone.
