Do You Have What It Takes To Play Games For A Living?

Clara Fernandez-Vara has written an essay on the life of a games studies scholar.  Here we have a little of everything:  some game history; that there are two ways of studying games (the theoretical — naming parts, and such — and the experimental — making one); a little simulator-narrative tension; and a bit about her own work on Rosemary, a game she designed at MIT to model memory.

Is this carreer for you?  Fun and games isn’t all fun and games — turns out it takes work!
