This year at the TriBeCa film festival, organisers are introducing video games as part of the entertainment.

Festival goers are to be shown a new breed of socially conscious games that aim to plunge players into a world of ethical decision making. Games like "The Migrant Trail" and  "Papers Please" force players to confront real world issues like immigration and the human cost of migration.
