JAAC X AFB Discussions #3: Tavinor on Video Games

Welcome to the third AFB x JAAC Discussion! Today, we will be looking at “What’s My Motivation? Video Games and Interpretive Performance” by Grant Tavinor, available in the Winter 2017 volume, 75 (1) of the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism (JAAC), online here. Grant is Senior Lecturer of Philosophy at Lincoln University, NZ and author of the book The Art of Videogames. And big thanks to C. Thi Nguyen (Utah Valley University) for providing the critical précis. Grant’s response follows that, and they will both be available to discuss your questions and thoughts in the comments! Check it all out below the fold.
