I hope this wasn't a choice between PAX Australia and TGS, because I would've greatly preferred the latter. Some Iceland style travel stuff would be awesome for Australia, but I don't have big expectations for the event itself. Also conventions bring content to a screeching halt, even if they do liven up the Bombcast and bring us a panel video.
Speaking to the point about these being taught in classrooms, I can personally attest to having professors play youtube videos throughout the course. I do attend a community college to be fair.
Also someone should time stamp those spoilers! I haven't played Ico or Pandora's Tower yet, and I haven't finished Breath of Fire IV. I want to argue too damn it!
playing youtube videos? sure.
basing a course around them... or having it be one of the main focuses? that's what he's claiming.
Isn't that kind of splitting hairs though? In the end these videos are something that people will be learning from. Shouldn't we be concerned if something like that has inaccuracies, presumptions, or generalizations?
