Week 14: Video Games and Platform Studies

When analyzing the relationships between video games and some of the other media we have looked at in class this semester, I see quite a few similarities.  Some of the narrative pieces and poetry that were interactive were kind of like a video game.  When the reader is able to interact with the poetry, the reader is more captivated and their attention is more focused on the narrative.  The best example I can think of this is the most recent one, which is the poem, “Today I Die.”  This was easily the most interactive literature I had ever seen.

To be honest, I’ve never been much of a poetry buff throughout my life so far.  But when I was looking at “Today I Die,” I took a different approach to it.  It was fascinating, and the required involvement of the reader did wonders in terms of keeping my attention and interest levels high.  I would actually go as far as to say that “Today I Die” is like the literature/poetry version of a video game.  Overall, I really enjoyed the new experience.
