The Spectacle - a short comment

Well, look what I came across in Guy Debord's 1967 book The Society of the Spectacle:
The spectacle is not a collection of images; it is a social relation between people that is mediated by images.
The statement seems tailor-made for RPGs. And I have to admit, I like this notion of 'the spectacle'; it is a great word, which carries a lot of significance.
