Interesting Theory

The reading for this week was indeed interesting. I can only agree that the game space is natural, neutral, intangible and without qualities. I remember when I first started to play video games and how my pupils had to adjust every time I would get up and out of the video game. It’s true, I said out of the video game because you get so immersed in the game at times that time seems to revolve around the game and not the real world. You start to feel separation from the game and the outside.
I liked the idea of how games have in a sense evolved. We no longer need an actual “space” to play them. We can do so from screens and from our desks. We can play opponents worldwide and with broadband speed. Evolution to the max.

  1. I’ve definitely felt this sense of life revolving around a game (especially when you have a new game that you’re playing for the first time). As you mentioned, I also love that now you can take your games with you on your phone and your iPod so that you can never be without them.
