MTV's Gamers' Week

The old line about not being able to see music videos on MTV anymore still gets a knowing smile (if not a hearty chuckle) because it's mostly true: MTV is now Youth Culture Central, and youth culture encompasses not just videos, but fashion, total self-makeovers, over-the-top party planning, trainwrecky male bonding behavior, and, of course, gaming. So it makes sense that MTV would be celebrating Gamers' Week. They're counting down the greatest games of all time (a great primer for those of us who are not so game-literate -- I count myself in this group), previewing, and reviewing new releases. The minisite requires Adobe Flash.

Updated to add a link to Jenny's post encouraging us all to take a break and play a game. Amen!
