That's an actual class offered at Rice University. When I was in college, I thought it was pretty cool that The Dark Knight Returns was a textbook for a course I took. It was an examination of deconstructionism, but reading freaking Batman for a class was awesome.
Video games though? They were still regarded as childrens' toys, not remotely culturally relevant enough to warrant academic scrutiny. Pretty cool.
