Porque los Video Juegos se han convertido en el Medio Narrativo Perfecto

Nathan Schultz's curator insight, November 25, 2015 7:55 PM

The recent video game, Until Dawn, offers players the ability to choose the course of the game's narrative by giving the gamer the power to decide each character's actions.  In one scene, two teenagers are tied to a chair, with sharp spinning blades descending on their heads, and the choice of whether one-or both-of the teenagers dies is left entirely to the viewer.  

 

This idea is fascination because it explores the notion that gamers should serve as the "director" deciding the fate of the characters on screen, which ties back in with the concept that modern audiences want stories to be subject to their will.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, July 30, 2015 10:43 AM

"Oculus Story Studio's new (& cute) animated short "Henry" brings the psychology of empathy (and much more) into the forefront of development and design.  Yes, it will change the way the audience watches and thinks about movies, but it will only succeed as an artform if filmmakers, storytellers and producers understanding the fundamentals that create empathy, how empathy differs from sympathy and other forms of emotional response, how the sense of presence changes with perception and how people attribute meaning like intentionality in a 'shared space.'  The most telling quote in the article is a parenthetical aside when Saschka Unseld is quoted as saying that the change in connection makes comedy twice as hard because Buster Keaton-esque physical comedy just feels “mean.”  VR will force the examination of all the conventional filmmaking rules of thumb for transmitting engagement and emotion--without which the story isn't successful. #mediapsych  More than ever, it's the psychology that matters.
