Max Weber and The Swindle

It’s a theme that keeps coming up! Fellow Brooklynite Riley MacLeod has a juicy bit of commentary over at Kill Screen about how The Swindle in some ways thwarts the usual narrative of hard work and unique specialness that plays into the philosophy of capitalist societies. He doesn’t draw the same parallels to the game industry’s work ethic in general, but it’s cool to see game journalists thinking in the same space.
