Daniel Floyd’s “Chasing Maturity: Video Games & Sex” lecture deservedly caught a lot of attention. Simply by adding some cute Flash to a smart essay, he created something informative and very watchable. And he’s done it again. Via Edge Online, and teaming up with James Portnow, the two have written and animated another lecture, this time on The Power Of Tangential Learning. Again it’s smart, without being ground-breaking, and lots of fun to watch.

This is worth a watch. It’s a short lecture by Daniel Floyd on the subject of sex in videogames, made as a Flash video for a Media Theory class at Savannah College of Art and Design, openly inspired by Zero Punctuation.
He doesn’t make any stunning revelations, but does sum up the subject efficiently and coherently, and reiterates the key point that if games are to explore sex in an effective way, they need to learn to also portray relationships and intimacy. Thanks to Nicholas for the tip.
