The NYPL event isn't the first time Spec Ops: The Line has been critically analyzed. In November 2012, academic Brendan Keogh published Killing is Harmless: A Critical Reading of Spec Ops: The Line as an investigation of violence in video games, Western intervensionism and war.
The NYPLarcade Game Club kicked off in May with a discussion of thatgamecompany's Journey. Read our interview with senior librarian Thomas Knowlton, who usually leads the discussions, here.
