I am currently doing research for a paper that will talk about the history and impact of id Software, and more specifically DOOM, on culture.  In working on finding academic sources I stumbled upon the site how they got game, which is maintained by Stanford University.  There is a lot of cool stuff there, and it is encouraging to see a major University look into the larger impact that games have had, and not just treat it as something trivial that only greasy nerds participate in.  If you have time check out the site; it’s well worth you’re time.

They have a whole section devoted to machinima, which is where I found this video.  A student made a short video about the Holocaust using Halo 3.  It’s a good video, and worth a few minutes of your time.
