This course traces the history, aesthetics, and culture of video games from early text adventures to contemporary first-person shooter games. We will consider video game genres, narratives, gender and identity, and the influence of video games on mainstream media culture and Internet culture. We will also discuss the technological development of games and game systems and the video game industry in general, as well as how video games have had an impact upon the history of computers. From "Zork" to "Myst" to "Grand Theft Auto", we will seriously consider video games as an important cultural form of representation and interactivity.
