In this week’s issue, StateCraft, we discuss various ways in which the government affects our beloved gaming, and gaming, government. While I have my own ideas and opinions enough to fill the entire magazine, I thought I might invite a few friends to speak on their areas of interest.
Jason Della Rocca highlights the current dilemma of the government as it relates to gaming – the game industry strengthens economies, but sometimes stretches our sensibilities, causing strife between the branches. Dave Thomas delves into America’s Army, our government’s first foray into developing a videogame, and the purpose behind the game. New this week is Matthew Hector, discussing the recently signed, shortly to be enacted, Illinois Safe Game Act from a legal point of view.
