In case you missed it, be sure to catch the YouTube footage of game designer Ian Bogost on this Tuesday’s Colbert Report. Colbert, with his faux-Republican act, can be a tough host when it comes to letting guests speak their piece, however progressive. Bogost, however, does a more than admirable job of explaining the potential power of games with a smile on his face. His descriptions of how games can put us in other people’s shoes are approachable, but not dumbed down for a mass media audience. He comes off as smart, patient, and right. It’s enough to make this gamer proud. Good job, Ian Bogost, wherever you are…

P.S. Excellent image courtesy of Scott. Thanks!

    I haven’t, actually, though I probably should. Anyone else want to weigh in?
