I recently discovered a book entitled The Legend of Zelda and Philosophy. I only had a chance to flip through the pages because I did not have the money to buy the book, although I certainly will soon enough. Nonetheless, it reveals a concept about the world that is rarely considered by most people. Fiction has a strong foundation from what the creator(author, game programmer, director, producer, poet, etc.) has learned about reality, but it can also allow others to learn about life. Why is the Legend of Zelda a very popular game? The gameplay is very important in this claim, but so are the minds of the players. The concept of the game appeals to players in ways that similar games do not. Some people may recognize this idea in their choice of games, but most often it is subtle and subconscious.

The Gotham Knight animation brilliantly portrays the Batman storyline. Separated into several different stories, with different artist and different viewpoints, it runs like a comic book. It is unforunate that it has not received much publicity. I had heard about it awhile back, but I did not know it had been released until I saw it at blockbuster. The animation certainly made me want to see the Dark Knight more, but it holds up strongly on its own. I particulary enjoyed the art because the Japanese style seemed to fit batman and the city of Gotham very well. Each of the stories were very well developed and prevent me from choosing a single favorite. This is expected with screenwriters including individuals who worked on Batman Begins and Batman The Animated Series.
