You can think of video games as mere entertainment, but there is another way to see them: as devices that reflect our world and reshape the way we see it.


This book focuses on that reflection, examining what very popular titles (from Call of Duty to Persona 5) or very niche titles (from Yume Nikki to The Graveyard) tell us about our world, our societies and the way we relate to each other. of points of view complement each other and provide feedback in this collection of essays signed by some of the most prominent names in Spanish-speaking critics and academia, and which explore how video games deal with grief, trauma or otherness; how they (re)present the street protest, the different cultural realities or the implementation of new technologies; or what they are trying to tell us about history and the way we relate to it.
