Game of Drones

Joel Stein’s regular column in Time Magazine provides thought provoking issues through stories from the absurdity of modern life. In the latest issue of the magazine he writes about gaming as a sport. The title of his essay, which I borrowed for this post, indicates a indirect link between warcraft games and modern war on terrorism. However the assosiation one gets to the tv-series (and maybe even better:the book-series) Game of Thrones, which provides a mideaval fixed world of political structure and hierarchy written for tv by Game authors, gives me hope for the future of the epic literature.
