What is a Sports Videogame?
Video of my Vienna Games Conference Keynote
November 26, 2010
Earlier this fall I gave a keynote at the Vienna Games Conference, aka Future and Reality of Gaming, or FROG. The video of the talk has now been posted, and you can watch it in its entirety.
The talk tries to answer the question in the title... the gist of my response is that sports videogames are variants, not simulations. But you'll have to watch the video for the details.
This is the first salvo in new work I've been doing on sports videogames, and you should see more of it in 2011.
