 Hi, folks; I'm a game designer/publisher and also a teacher of high school English and Game Design, and I'm working on using games (video games and tabletop RPGs) in my English classes, along with the usual books. While the class I teach is more about video games, all my own writing and publishing is in the tabletop sphere.

I'm interested in hearing thoughts and feedback on the idea of using RPGs and video games as texts in class; my first blog post in a series on this subject is about considering what 'literature' means in this context, and I'm happy to have disagreement or discussion on that, but the later posts will be more specifically about the use of games. What makes them a good fit, what problems they have, and so on.

So, if you are interested in the idea, have negative or positive feedback, or even experience to share on the subject, I'd love to hear it! I'm especially interested in recommendations for games that might be used in a classroom, as my later posts will start to include critiques of such things.

Thanks!
~Nathan Rockwood
