Football management games

David Hill has posted some interesting reflections on football management games (and specifically the new version of championship manager which is now called football manager) on his Schizomedia blog. David points toward the amount of labour that is required to play the game. This extends a range of work on the way that popular culture requires labour. I’ve touched on this in one of the chapters in the book I’m working on. David Hill’s post really grounds some of these concepts in a specific game. It’s interesting how working so hard in an imagined environment can be seen to be so much fun.
