A Multimodal Approach to Video Games and the Player Experience Book Excerpt:

This volume puts forth an original theoretical framework, the ludonarrative model, for studying video games which foregrounds the empirical study of the player experience. The book provides a comprehensive introduction to and description of the model, which draws on theoretical frameworks from multimodal discourse analysis, game studies, and social semiotics, and its development out of participant observation and qualitative interviews from the empirical study of a group of players. The volume then applies this approach to shed light on how players’ experiences in a game influence how they understand and make use of game components in order to progress its narrative. The book concludes with a frame by frame analysis of a popular game to demonstrate the model’s principles in action and its subsequent broader applicability to analyzing video game interaction and design. Offering a new way forward for video game research, this volume is key reading for students and scholars in multimodality, discourse analysis, game studies, interactive storytelling, and new media.

The Player s Playmate Book Excerpt:

“I was thinking what would happen if I sat down on one knee…” Xander spoke as he sat down on his knee in front of me. “And asked you to be my girl.” He added as he put his hand out for me to grab. “I would hit you in the head with a frying pan like Rapunzel and ask you to go to the doctor to see if I fixed your head.” I told him as I hit him at the back of his head. They were supposed to be best friends for life. That is until they found something that made them grow closer...Going through the drama of highschool, the hurt of being betrayed by someone close to heart and a bunch of fun moments, Eleanor Ambrosia and Xander King find their own version of always and forever...

Computer Games II Book Excerpt:

Long before the advent of the electronic computer, man was fascinated by the idea of automating the thought processes employed in playing games of skill. The very first chess "Automaton" captured the imagination oflate eighteenth century Vienna, and by the early 1900s there was a genuine machine that could play the chess endgame of king and rook against a lone king. Soon after the invention of the computer, scientists began to make a serious study of the problems involved in programming a machine to play chess. Within a decade this interest started to spread, first to draughts (checkers) and later to many other strategy games. By the time the home computer was born, there had already been three decades of research into computer games. Many of the results of this research were published, though usually in publications that are extremely difficult (or even impossible for most people) to find. Hence the present volumes. Interest in computers and programming has now reached into almost every home in the civilized world. Millions of people have regular access to computers, and most of them enjoy playing games. In fact, approximately 80 percent of all software sold for use on personal computers is games software.
