Environmental Impacts of Video Games
Big Fish Games (based in Seattle) has recently created a graphic to represent the environmental impacts of video games. Of course, as a download based game company, Big Fish does have a stake in making console based games like Nintendo look bad. That said it’s a powerful representation of an issue the gaming industry (like the film and television industries) like to avoid – the ecological footprint of gaming.
