The Art of Videogames PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Art of Videogames free pdf "The Art of Videogames" explores how philosophy of the arts theories developed to address traditional art works can also be applied to videogames. It presents a unique philosophical approach to the art of videogaming, situating videogames in the framework of analytic philosophy of the arts. It is written for a broad audience of both philosophers and videogame enthusiasts by a philosopher who is also an avid gamer. It discusses the relationship between games and earlier artistic and entertainment media, how videogames allow for interactive fiction, the role of game narrative, and the moral status of violent events depicted in videogame worlds. It argues that videogames do indeed qualify as a new and exciting form of representational art.
