Time Out says

While many video games put the player in the role of a heroic character tasked with saving the world, some recent games have explored how an interactive medium can be used as a vehicle for memoir and personal storytelling. Showcasing titles like Consume Me, which unpacks the creator's relationship with food, "System Link: Video Game as Memoir" is interested in how picking up a controller can allow you to go inside the mind of the person responsible for the game you're playing.
