Videogames in Game Studies
Games are divided into many categories, but the most famous ones are the board games. These games can be played individually as solitary games or can be played in groups. Board games are played by people of all ages; they are good for relaxation and help to improve concentration. They are also played worldwide and have been developed over centuries. Here are few of the most popular games:
To begin with, the word “stereo” refers to any one of a number of devices used in audio visual systems, usually in automobiles, but sometimes also in mobile phones and computers. Stenops and games are similar: a video game is usually a visual or physical activity or contest which has rules, a goal and that people play for fun. A video game is also a competitive game or competition where people perform certain physical actions based on a particular set of rules. Today, making definitions of these terms may be easier due to the many uses of these electronic games.
In this article we want to introduce a new definition of a game, which will consequently change our knowledge of video games. The new definition will be the result of an analysis of game design and gaming research. Analytical work on video games has produced many definitions over the years, but none of these has been able to define them in a comprehensive way. Game research and design have produced some very vague generalities, which have not helped in the development of a detailed definition.
Game Definition The first thing to note about any game is its purpose. A game is defined when an author, designer, programmer or one of the other participants uses words, terms and phrases to tell a story, describe a set of objects or to represent the act of doing something through actions or physical actions. Video games fall under this definition, but games themselves are not a subject of academic study. There are no formal methods of defining a game and the subject comes down to what the participant takes it to be and how it is interpreted by others. This is in contrast to the definition of a language, which can be traced back to a particular family of languages (such as French, German, Greek or Latin) or to a particular group of culture (Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese).
Next, it is important to note that the meaning of some terms such as “arcade” has changed over time. Video games themselves do not fit into any recognizable category and some have evolved from earlier forms of media such as computer and television. Games are typically played on personal computers and include text-based worlds with interactivity. They also utilize non-text output such as sound and visual images in addition to the usual input, which can include visual representations of objects and actions, or verbal descriptions of these objects and actions. Therefore, they can be considered a sub-field of computer studies or even technology studies.
Finally, it would probably be a good idea for future studies of video games to redefine them using an expanded definition. This would allow for a more encompassing inclusion of all forms of game play in the social sciences. For instance, we might want to include leisure activities in defining games, or we could use a multi-dimensional approach that simultaneously characterize leisure activities, computer games, and video games as defining characteristics of a new class of cultural phenomenon.
