Example text

These elements move around freely in the gamespace, restricted only by the static objects and distance culling. ” Battlezone is considered to be the first commercial VR game because it used real goggles and a realistic two-joystick steering system combined with the innovative use of first-person 3D graphics to create a convincing VR effect. Comments from players show that the spatial experience the game offered, even in its crude wireframe mode, was its big draw. This is surprising since the level of 3D present in Battlezone is limited to vector projections of the objects’ wireframes with no hiddenline removal or solid polygon rendering.

Not surprisingly, most existing embedded narratives take the form of detective or conspiracy stories since these genres help to motivate the player’s active examination of clues and exploration of spaces and provide a rationale for his efforts to reconstruct the narrative of past events. Emergent Narratives The Sims (2000) represents yet another model of how narrative possibilities can be mapped onto gamespace. Emergent narratives are not merely prestructured or preprogrammed stories that take shape through the gameplay, yet they are not as unstructured, chaotic and frustrating as life itself.

The early Nintendo games have simple narrative hooks – rescue Princess Toadstool, for example – but what gamers found astonishing when they first played them were their complex and imaginative graphic realms, which were so much more sophisticated than the simple grids that PONG (1972) or Pac-Man (1980) had offered a decade earlier. And when gamer magazines describe the experience of gameplay, they are more likely to reproduce maps of a gameworld than to recount a game’s narrative. Don Carson, who worked as a Senior Show Designer for Walt Disney Imagineering, has argued that game designers can learn a great deal by studying techniques of “environmental storytelling,” which Disney employs in designing amusement park attractions: “The story element is infused into the physical space a guest walks or rides through.
