Ian Bogost is a professor, videogame designer, and author. His book “Persuasive Games” provides an in-depth look at videogames and how they function to teach us rhetoric. Because games allow us to explore the game’s rhetoric by participating, videogames offer a unique approach to understanding media. Many of the games described in his book were designed by Bogost's own company, which is also named Persuasive Games.
