You know gaming has become an accepted part of popular culture when a professor at a university decides to include the political and philosophical allusions contained in video games into their class schedule. Specifically, Metal Gear Solid. This professor over at the official PlayStation Forums created a Wiki page dedicated to Metal Gear Solid 2 and philosopy.

What does this have to do with the PS3? Not much, really. But it's a positive showing for Hideo Kojima and gives us hope that MGS4 is not just a system seller to gamers, but for people who enjoy thinking about what they're playing as well. Did that sound a little like BS? Maybe it was. We just thought this was really cool.
