An Odyssey into Video Games and Pop Culture

A pioneer in video game commentary, Robert B. Marks was one of the first – if not the first – video games issues columnists in the English language. In March 2015 he returned to take a fresh new look at video games and pop culture. Thought provoking, controversial, and insightful – and with new introductions – this collection includes: All 29 installments of Garwulf’s Corner from the pages of The Escapist, covering issues ranging from outrage culture to diversity to the culture war over the Hugo Awards. “Beyond the Escapist,” a collection of installments including an examination of shared cinematic universes, an analysis of one of the most famous Twitter harassment criminal cases of all time, and the first two parts of “The Road to GamerGate,” a planned but abandoned 4-part series taking a historical look at the events of August 2014 – most published here for the first time. Garwulf Speaks, Robert B. Marks’ magazine experiment, with feature articles covering video game piracy to the history of the public climate change debate to the changing identity of the gamer – and short stories to thrill, move, and even terrify. From the toy industry to the revival of Battlebots, from the Ghostbusters remake to one of video gaming’s first mass murder simulators, this is a fascinating odyssey into the amazing world of video games and pop culture.
