It Is Complicated


Gaming is complicated

Season 1, Ep. 26

Gaming is complicated -  How do we understand stories within games? Skyrim might be the only game according to one of us - that doesn’t prevent us talking about the ideas that make games work and how that allows us to make sense of our world. Games are more serious as media than we think - they promote discourse and participation. 

How does modding a game allow us to build on our experience, and build something that allows for us to represent ourselves more within games. 

Why creating the Bandit Protection Society in Skyrim would be a wonderful thing and why is this not a possible choice. Why thinking outside the normative rules of a game is creative and frustrating in turns.
