Opening Lecture (Parts 1 and 2)

Part 1:

Part 2:

(I'm still working on Part 3... I'll post with tomorrow's readings.)



Dr. Jerz,

Whenever I click on the first video to play it, it comes up "This Video has been removed because it is too long. Is this lecture on the unit assessment?

No, it's not on the assessment quiz that's online now.

Thanks for the tip. Let me see what the problem is...

Okay, I've updated the clip for Part 1. I think it should work this time.

Video games are playing a part in driving our digital culture. Video games like opera in a sense , is bring together different types of artists, composers, singers, and designers. All of these different elements are brought together to create the games that we all play today. There are other elements that are dirving digital culture but video games are a big part of our digital culture.

The gap between the importance of movies and the importance of games is becoming smaller. The narratives of movies like District 9, The Matrix, and Watchmen are competing with the stories that games like System Shock, Bioshock, and Half-Life 2 are telling. I hope great games will be experienced and remembered by a much larger audience in the future.
