SIGNIFICANT ZERO Heroes, Villains, and the Fight for Art and Soul in Video Games

by | Read by Kevin T. Collins

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Kevin Collins gives listeners a bird's-eye view of professional life in the video game industry. The account is written by someone who happened to fall into it and now works some of the hottest games released annually. Collins makes for a complicated narrator in this production. His soft, wry delivery fits well with Williams's deadpan jokes and commentary on annoying bosses, lame industry practices, and quirky video game culture, but it can also feel condescending and tiresome to listen to when the content is describing interesting details about how games are created. While listeners will enjoy learning about the technical details behind creating their favorite video games, they may grow tired of Collins's condescending tone.
