Videogames are complex systems of representation. As cultural artefacts, videogames function as media texts serving to represent and produce cultural phenomena. This course fosters critical thinking regarding the role of video games to entertain, instruct, and build community; along with their potential to perpetuate stereotypes, glorify violence and propagate gender inequality. Through reflective gameplay you will analyse the videogame medium, reflecting on how its socio-cultural implications might inform your own serious game design.
