Hotline Miami

The subject for my and Johan’s bachelor exam is moral choices in games and how game designers can use them and affect the player in various ways. In our research, among many other things like reading and analysing other works and texts about the subject, we involve a lot of testing different games that we know deals with some form of moral choices or dilemmas in games. Right now I have been playing Hotline Miami a lot. While it doesn’t deal with the subject in the direct way we are interested in, it takes up several questions around the subject. As Johan said it, you don’t make active moral choices in game, but the game asks the player a lot of questions that forces you to think about your own moral while you continue with your crazy killing spree.

It’s really hard, but I look forward to see the end of it and how it goes deeper into your own mad mind. But the coming days I will focus more on analysing The Walking Dead and Heavy Rain which deals more with the type of choices and dilemmas we are looking for. And of course, do the other work that’s necessary, like writing and analysing more. But this is it for today, now it’s time for some Aikido.

Friday incoming!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
