Philosophy in 8-Bit II

Posted by in Gaming, Philosophy

Time for Part II of 8-bit Philosophy. The following videos are put together by Wisecrack in an effort to educate using sprites from past 8-bit games within the context of teaching philosophy concepts. They are relatively short and to the point, great for sharing with any video game enthusiast.  They have put out over a dozen so far, and more coming every so often. Their content has been shown on Huffington Post, Wired, Nerdist, and others. Perhaps one day they’ll dive into 16-bit sprites. Check out the next ten segments below to expand your mind.
