I don't know why, but I'm always interested in reading video game articles written for publications that are typically not video game centric. As far as I know, those types of articles are relatively uncommon. I thought it'd be interesting to compile a list of these articles we stumble across... it'd be helpful to those of you who are students and want to write papers on video games, at least. If you guys come across any articles, please post them here and I'll incorporate them into the main post!
