|Halo fan fiction goes scholarly|
|Posted By: vector40 <firstname.lastname@example.org>||Date: 3/11/09 7:36 p.m.|
This is too fucking much.
I'm taking a course through my university's art department about the structure, function, and aesthetics of video games. The textbook we're using is a very earnest volume called Understanding Video Games
I just read through Chapter 7 (Player Culture), and look what I saw.
On the other end of the scale, creative fiction writers and manga artists who are inspired by games are not interested in gameplay at all, but only in the narrative, or rather, the possible narrative inspired by a particular game. They will elaborate on a character's history, re-tell events that happened in the game adding explanations and feelings, and even write poetry based on their favorite characters. Stories, poems and drawings expand the emotional universe in ways that the game cannot do. Here is a Halo fan poem called "Hymn to the Fallen."
