Spoiled Rotten

Michael Thomsen recently published an article in The Escapist about spoilers in games that we think are an interesting piece.

“It’s hard to know the exact the origin of the term “spoiler.” The idea that learning some plot points in advance can ruin a work seems at least somewhat absurd. The Godfather is no less rich for knowing Michael will eventually take his father’s place. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is no less charming and puzzling when you know Gannon will arrive at the end.”

Our colleague Peter Zackariasson has made a minor contribution.
