The Game Probe Series by Mike Jones – 7 episodes and counting

We have linked the Game Probe series before on gmzzz, but I think it’s time to post the whole series here.

For those of you who haven’t been following Mike Jones, he’s award winning teacher and writer with extensive experience in media technology, creative production, journalism, online development and critical analysis of screen culture. He has written more than two hundred published essays articles and reviews along with three books for students of screen media.

He uses his expertise to analyse video games in a fantastic series of video essays entitled Game Probe and has so far produced seven episodes, all of which can be found below. It’s an inspiring work that I recommend all of you to watch. For more of Game Probe be sure to check it’s original website. Enjoy!
