“Let’s Play or Game Over?” by Sebastian Ostritsch: The boss – culture

Sebastian Ostritsch believes that the moral debate about video games finally needs a solid foundation, an ethics of gaming. But his theses have a blind spot.

The public discussion about computer games suffers from the fact that it is usually either clueless talk – or one discourse, something that is clearly marked by the effort to take its subject very seriously. Only gradually does something like a medium level become established. The book “Let’s Play or Game Over?” can be located quite easily on the said spectrum. It contains sentences that end, for example, like this: “,… the smart gamer will avoid any excess in computer games with a view to the good life”. Measure and the good life are key concepts from Aristotle and the ancient doctrine of virtue.
