I’ve been meaning to link to this for a while…

Shamus Young has completed his four-part analysis of the character of Mordin Solus from Mass Effect 2. It’s a very good series, and of interest to anyone who has played ME 2. (You can find part 1 here.)

I think that video games aren’t going to get widely accepted as an art form until we get people writing more articles like this that seriously analyze their plots and characters.

While I often disagree with Young’s taste in games, I always enjoy reading his blog because he at least takes the narrative aspect of gaming seriously.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
