The Art of Computer Game Design

Many of the early critical works of digital game studies have been authored by games industry professionals, rather than academics. Chris Crawford published this classic text originally in 1982, and it has then been made available online by professor Sue Peabody from Washington State University Vancouver. The book has been very influential in the way it discusses games through comparisons to some neighboring cultural forms.
