Deathless Prose: Permament Death

I've talked about Ben Abraham's Far Cry 2 permadeath play through before. The point, of course, isn't about playing in Iron Man mode. It's about playing in Iron Man mode and then writing about it. And Ben's gone far further into this terrain than anyone else. His twenty-hour playthrough is immortalised in a 400-page, lavishly illustrated PDF complete with an intro from Far Cry 2's head-chap Clint Hocking. I've yet to read it, but this is clearly the product of true obsession as well as a monumental monograph in games journalism. Between this and Alice & Kev, it's proving quite the year for large-scale experience-orientated games writing.
