Journey on home console, Ian Bogost on Journey in the Atlantic, Joe Houston on Ian Bogost on Journey on his blog
Ian Bogost writes an exemplary article about video games for The Atlantic under the guise of a review of That Games Company's Journey.

Industry veteran Joe Houston points out that one of Bogost's key points is just ridiculous.
