A Hero of Our Time: Introduction

In my Hero of Our Time series, I gathered together a collection of reflections from and on Lermontov’s novel from which I take my eponym. The theme, which had impelled me to enter the already saturated game blogospere, was the impact of game on one’s life more broadly considered, and the problems it introduces, problems characteristic of our age, but as we see, not only of our age.

Here’s the whole series:
