How do you see the relationships between video games and some of the other media we’ve looked at this semester?
Video games and any other media requires an interface, a console and some form of code for the machine to run. Although media is very diverse and is used in many different ways it is created in the same process. Like YouTube for example, YouTube is a site to watch music videos, you may not be playing a game or controlling the scenes produced on the screen but it is made in the same manner, with graphics and sound and you must have some sort of interface or console to watch it on. So despite of the differences on how we use different media all of it is similiar based on how we design these things.
As far as the types of media, I think alot of the digital poems related to Video games pretty well because you actually got to interact with the screen with the mouse or keyboard. For example, Today I Die was a video game wrapped in a poem and you had to figure out the clues to know how to make it through the entire poem and set the girl free. I think using Video games and graphic design is going to change alot of how we learn teach and express ourselves. In this class I have learned alot about many different programs and sites I never knew existed and there are many more out there waiting to be discovered.
