In an article published by The Atlantic earlier this month, writer Taylor Clark posited that "video games, with very few exceptions, are dumb."

Nevermind the ridiculousness of such a hyperbolic, inflammatory statement, responds Brainy Gamer's Michael Abbott. We can prove Clark wrong.


So Abbott is constructing a list, one brainy offering at a time, to prove to the world that there are plenty of smart games out there after all. And you can help! Just head over to Brainy Gamer and add your own contributions to Abbott's informal Smart Game Catalog.

Games already on the list include BioShock, Civilization IV, and Persona 3. What would you suggest?

I got your smart games right here. [Brainy Gamer]
