Tim Biggs: Games and Media Guy
I also write articles and review stuff at Fairfax when required. You can see all that stuff here.
I was previously a freelance games writer and academic. I got a masters degree researching the role of games in postmodern social theories. Those same interests lead to my writing a series of IGN features between 2012-2014, which I’ll list below since I’m proud of them above any other freelancing work (and since they’re not really listed anywhere else).
- Why real-world morals have no place in video games
- ‘Iterative’ is not a dirty word
- Games as art: another perspective
- Book-burning and ‘violent’ video games
- Playing other peoples’ stories
- In defence of OUYA
- Cult of the familiar: the state of sequels
- Games aren’t film: colonisation and media blindness
- Video games and the search for authenticity
- Pressing start and the games that never stop
