I’m not sure how many of you know this, but one of my many side-jobs involves a video game blog I write for a site called True/Slant. My corner of the site is called Double Kill, and I try to tackle issues in the video game industry or noteworthy news items.

Well, searching the internet far and wide for issues to discuss in various columns, I came across Daniel Floyd, a gamer and animator that has a web series of lectures where he talks about issues facing the video game community. Though they’re “lectures” in name,  they’re far from boring, and actually are some of the most interesting pieces of VG commentary I’ve seen.

I’ve included the eight-parts-and-counting video series below, which you can watch at your leisure. And if you want to keep up with me on True/Slant, bookmark me here.

    THIS should be required instruction for game industry members at all levels. Just outstanding points and information painlessly presented. Well done and thanks for sharing these, I would never have seen them otherwise.

    Interesting topics, but the delivery is flat out boring. Poor man’s Yhatzee Croshaw.
