Articles on Competitive Gaming


#1

besides David Sirlin’s book/articles, are there any other notable articles on the subject of competitive gaming?

the reason i’m asking is that my university allows “student taught courses” for 1 hour credit. i’m trying to propose a class on the culture of competitive fighting games, but of course they require some sort of “academic content”. i want to cover themes about competitive gaming and competitive mentality in general, so i’m looking for some additional reading material.

thanks for the help everyone!

You may find this relevant: http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board/attachment.php?attachmentid=3437&d=1254092679 Though I suppose it’s more psychology than competitive gaming, and probably a bit confusing without knowledge of the game it was written for.
