Some people say video games can’t be art.
Rhea Monique, writing for her blog Hellmode, offers this stunning account of her experience of the new Tomb Raider that pretty much blows that assertion out of the water and then some:
Against my will, at a complete surprise, it made me relive something that I had spent most of my teenage years forcing out of my head; the smell of the shed, the way the air was so cold, and the way my throat burned for hours after the attack as I sat in the street afraid to move—afraid for my life.
Be warned: this is some very personal, very graphic writing. Not for the faint of heart or those still traumatized by their own scars.
