2280-video game
Detail:
Answer one of the following questions:
•  ‘Work is increasingly becoming a kind of game, and gaming is increasingly
becoming a kind of work.’ To what extent do you agree with this claim?
Support your response with relevant scholarship and recent examples of how
the nature of work and play have changed.

•    Is it useful to consider video games’ representation of real-world
situations and issues, or are they simply too disconnected from real life? In
your response be sure to engage meaningfully with a past or current debate
about the impact of game representation.

•    Alexander Galloway describes games as ‘algorithmic cultural objects’. Do
you agree with this characterisation? Be sure to begin your answer with a clear
explanation of Galloway’s meaning.
