"Think about the notion of a documentary videogame. not a documentary about a videogame, but a videogame that is a documentary. Such a thing doesn't seem possible does it? Think about the implications of that. There can never be the equivelent of a Blair Witch Project for videogames. Think about that for the implications on a reality versus fantasy debate."

I'm not sure this statement is true, because the computer as medium is much more than just gaming. It's the world wide web and databases, desk top publishing and e-mails as well. A combination of these types of computer media would in fact make the difference between fantasy and reality blurred like in the Blair Witch Project.
