In 2009 he conducted a single-life “Permadeath” let’s play of the videogame Far Cry 2 (2008), documenting it in a 300+ page PDF, which can be found here.
He also founded and ran for its first few years the website Critical Distance, which curates lists of excellent writing and criticism of videogames.
