In 2009 he conducted a single-life “Permadeath” let’s play of the videogame Far Cry 2 (2008), documenting it in a 300+ page PDF, which can be found here.
He also founded and ran the website Critical Distance for its initial years, curating lists of excellent writing and criticism of videogames.
A short list of his personal choices for a “best of the best of games criticism” (constrained roughly to between years 2007 and 2010) is here.
