LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

Warning! This class is linked to the AAU Game Jam and participation will be mandatory. The preliminary date is December 14-16 (Fr - So) (may change). 

Students completing this class will be familiar with the most important terminology in videogame criticism, and will be able to apply this knowledge to in-depth analyses of the medium. 

Lehrmethodik

short lecture inputs; hands-on analyses of selected games; participation in a Game Jam; discussions

Inhalt/e

Videogames and other digital experiences have become the leading medium in western, post-/late modern societies, overcoming stereotypical expectations as to the gender and age of players. In order to be able to appreciate games and their socio-cultural potential accordingly, it is necessary to use an appropriate terminology and accurate critical methods - we must learn to 'read' games. This is what this class is there to achieve, to give students access to useful theories and then have them apply this knowledge to their hands-on, shared experience of selected games.
