SGD202 Video Game Analysis

Videogames are complex systems of representation. As cultural artefacts, videogames function as media texts serving to represent and produce cultural phenomena. This course examines the form and function of video game texts and considers the impact of their cultural, historical and industrial contexts. The course develops a comprehensive understanding of video game aesthetics and how these combine with narrative to create meaning. You will engage with and apply technical terminology, theoretical concepts, and academic work on game design and production, acquiring the skills needed to critically analyse games as texts.
