    • Games as Media “ [G]ames are perhaps the only medium that allows us to experience guilt over the actions of fictional characters. In a movie, because we do not control what occurs, we can always pull back […], but in playing a game, we choose what happens to the chracters. In the right circumstances, we can be encouraged to examine our own values by seeing what we are willing to do within virtual space. - Henry Jenkins Morrowind Grand Theft Auto III Fable Slide 5

    • Serious Games “ I want to suggest that videogames have a unique persuasive power. Recent movements in the videogame industry, most notably the so- called Serious Games movement […] have sought to create videogames to support existing social and cultural positions. But videogames are capable of much more. In addition to becoming instrumental tools for institutional goals, videogames can also disrupt and change fundamental attitudes and beliefs about the world, leading to potentially significant long-term social change. - Ian Bogost Slide 9
