Aha, a note from Thuyen Nguyen: " I've just completed my latest machinima film, and seeing as you were interested enough to feature my last film on GameSetWatch (The Most Powerful Person in the World, 2007/05), I thought you'd be interested."
So what is it? "'Same As It Ever Was' is thematically similar to my last film, in that it is another "defense" of video games. But while the last film was a celebration of all that good about games, the new film is a direct response to all of the video game critics. I argue that critics are simply re-using the same arguments against games as they did for movies, music, television, comics, etc":
Thuyen's conclusion? "Simply put, games are just another in the long line of scapegoats for society's ills. To make my point, I use, amongst other things, a rabbit :)"
