X45: Critical Gaming: Play to Live and Live to Play in Splash 2010 (Apr. 03, 2010)
In school we learn to read books in a critical way because the experience makes us connect with issues, ideas, and desires that really matter to us. We get to see life in an incredible new way because of the personal growth we experience in reading a book seriously. That same truth holds just as much for VIDEO GAMES. Even though no one has ever shown us how to play games critically, it is our task to make play the most incredibly brilliant, enlightening, and exciting experience it can be. In this class we will learn some approaches to critical video game play that can help us discover WHY we love games so much and HOW we should play in every aspect of our lives TO HAVE FUN! YOU DON'T NEED TO BE A GAMER TO TAKE THIS CLASS AT ALL.
