So I’m back in school and taking an English (!) course called Video Games as/and Literature. We started out by talking about the definition of a game. The first one we looked at was this:
“A game is a system in which players engage in an artificial conflict, defined by rules, that results in a quantifiable outcome.” – Sulen and Zimmerman
By that definition, is World of Warcraft a game?
I’ll post my thoughts (and the thoughts some of my classmates had) in a separate entry later this week, but wanted to hear what you guys had to say.
