About PublicBeta

PublicBeta is about creating brilliant live events, and publishing the best new material about videogames and videogame culture.

Whereas existing publications tend to focus on the Industry, the technology, simplistic consumer-facing value-judgements of game releases or impenetrable academic texts - PublicBeta aims to stimulate high-quality discussion to the end of developing a new, relevant critical language with which we can talk articulately about videogames, and videogaming culture.

Importantly, it does all of the above whilst remembering that games are first and foremost, fun.

About Difficult Questions About Videogames

365 pages. 969 responses. 71 contributors.

Difficult Questions About Videogames is a unique and vital document of the state of contemporary thinking and opinion on this most pervasive, important and misunderstood of popular cultural forms.

Never before have CEOs, developers, journalists, academics and (of course) players been brought together to sweat it out over the same difficult questions.

Their answers are radical, loving, conservative, funny, mundane, controversial and emotional - what binds them together is the commitment that these questions are worth answering, because games matter.

Difficult Questions About Videogames is Now Available.
