I believe the link Dag refers to is http://www.historians.org/publications-and-directories/perspectives-on-history/may-2014/the-assassin%E2%80%99s-perspective.
It’s a fascinating article (thanks for mentioning it Dag). The author (Trepanier) mentions an edited volume on game studies and history; I note that SIGCIS member Joe November has a chapter in the book, titled “Playing with the Past” (see http://playingwiththepast.com/contents/).
