Librarians and academics: How would you go about citing a specific moment or piece of content from a video game?
A confluence of events (finishing a second play through of BioShock Infinite, the recent Anita Sarkeesian
post in the blue, among other things) has me wondering if there's an established convention (ie: MLA or something similar) for citing a part of a video game like you would cite a passage in a novel or a specific 30-second chunk of a film for the purposes of academic or critical discussion.
I've been trying to wrap my brain around how this could be done properly. Most of the work I've seen online has been pretty informal, either vague finger pointing at, you know, the thing
in the game or, at best, showing an excerpt of gameplay capture. Neither of these things really seems like the equivalent of a "text" or "source" in more traditional critical writing.
So just what is the "text" in a videogame? How would you cite it in an academic/critical work so that a reader would actually know what you're talking about?
