I might be wrong, but if ever there will have to exist a manifesto for OOP, a good old angry ideological statement, I think Ian Bogost just wrote it.
And it is scorching.
I just read it and I’ve got mixed feelings about it, since it kicks quite hard. I’ll let it settle for a while before taking a position on it. There is just one bit I like too much not to quote:
A real world. A world of humans, things, and ideas. A world of the commonplace. A world that prepares jello salads. A world that litigates, that chews gum, that mixes cement. A world that rusts, that photosynthesizes, that ebbs.
