    Genre and the Video Game
    An analysis of genre categorization as applied to video games in contrast with
    books and film, with definitions and examples.

  • Genre and the Video Game Chapter 6 of, by Mark J

  • One could easily substitute video game for film in the above quote; video games’ heroes are certainly more static than film ones, and plots are often even more predictable

  • And most of all, the interactive experience of playing a video game is even more of a cooperation between artists and audiences , who go beyond celebrating collective values by applying those values to the activity found in game play itself

  • Video game genre study differs markedly from literary or film genre study due to the direct and active participation of the audience, through the surrogate player-character who acts within the game’s diegetic world, taking part in the central conflict of the game’s narrative

  • Apart from the fact the video games often do not have happy endings (games usually end with a player-character’s death), Schatz’s four terms describe the action of most video games

  • If a film genre represents a range of experience for the audience as Schatz argues, video games fit the description even more closely

  • In some ways, player participation is arguably the central determinant in describing and classifying video games, moreso even than iconography - News & Information Homepage

    Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within: PIB PC Game Review
    "This game is the best of its type that I've played."

  • They should have started a good new series to start using the full motion video

  • If you're looking for an interesting game with full motion video, you should buy this game

  • Hey, look, the video version of Gabe has just has much of a fascination with mirrors and his hair as the animated one did

  • Perhaps a pause function for the videos? Nothing like being in the middle of a video and suddenly needing to do some mundane task like answering the door or phone

  • With all but the start or end videos, you can only view them once, so if there was anything interesting there, you would have to restore a saved game
