History Of Video Games And Interactive Media

Your final submission is a 1500-2000 word analytical/reflective essay (not a review!) on a subject of your choosing, and on a video game of your choosing (given some minor constraints). Your critique will answer a question that you’ve posed about your chosen game—think of it as a longer version of your individual response. Your answer will include evidence in support of your position drawn directly from your chosen game, and will be supported by critical/reflective sources (note the plural). The research question you intend to answer should be motivated by your own experience playing your chosen game: Ask something that is of interest to you in relation to your game, but that has some amount of analytical depth. That is, you should strive to find question that you can talk about at some length, without needlessly repeating yourself or obviously padding. I recommend that near the beginning of your paper, shortly after you have introduced your question, that you write a variation of the following sentence: “In this essay, I argue/suggest/propose that [the answer to your question].” This will give you direction, and steer you away from reviewing. I expect that: 1. Whatever video game you choose, you’ll put in the order of ten hours of play into the game.
