Thus the situation of characters within videogames shows an example of distraction, the test-space and its tactile appropriation through habituation. Initially, the player encounters the characters or objects in an optical, contemplative sense. An unfamiliar videogame is prone to prompt such thoughts: Can I jump this chasm? Am I strong enough to overcome that enemy? A player at this stage will likely look for representational cues to choose a course of action. As the player becomes habituated and learns the specificities of the game-space, their reactions become more unnatural- they no longer judge a chasms length by their own real-world experience, but by the distance they know their charac ...

... indeed, a mythology about childhood. On the one hand, children are seen to possess a natural, spontaneous creativity, which is somehow released by the machine; while on the other, children are seen as vulnerable, innocent and in need of protection. Ultimately, both positions are symptomatic of the chronic sentimentality with which our society views children - of the very limited and limiting ways in which we construct the meaning of childhood, and thereby constrain the lives of children. At the same time, both positions are characterized by a kind of technological determinism - that is, a belief that technology will bring about social changes in and of itself`. Whether we see these chang ...

A. Post World War II changes in traditional structure The family is the most important element in Japanese society. Traditionally Japan had large, extended families, with three or four generations living together. Today, although grandparents sometimes live with the family, most people live in small nuclear homes consisting of the parents and one or two children. This change has occurred slowly since the end of World War II. Before the war, Japan was an agricultural society, with most people lived in farming communities where rice was the major crop. Rice growing requires many people working together to plan, harvest and irrigate; therefore, in order to survive, families had to live near eac ...

... th no existing norms or values. As discussed earlier, the experiences of a newborn will actually determine which neuropathways are developed in the brain. Psychiatrist Dr. Dorothy Lewis has spent more that twenty-five years studying the motives of murderers. She believes that the seeds of violence are sewn by childhood abuse (Vaughan 551). One of her most striking realizations after interviewing scores of kids behind bars has been the high rates of child abuse among children who kill. In one study, ninety-six percent of homicidal children have come from chaotic family backgrounds, usually including family violence. Ninety percent have been abused as a child by a family member (Morse 122) ...

Everyone has felt somewhat out of place at one point or another in his or her life. How does one feel when he or she has no one to turn to? Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Rappaccini's Daughter" are both works that give the reader a chance to observe how individuals feel and act when they are placed in an isolated position. Mary Shelly's Frankenstein is a book about a creature that is alienated from society due to his repulsive outward appearance, and Hawthorne's story gives the account of a beautiful lady who cannot have social acquaintances because of her fatal physical qualities. Frankenstein's creature's isolation is turned into rage, while Beatrice, Rappaccini's d ...

The Sociopolitical Ramifications Of Computer Gaming - 3,196 words
Since the dawning of civilization, when the first humans walked the earth, games have played an integral part in human society. Humanity has always had a passion for pastimes and has accordingly created an immense number of methods for achieving diversion. From the game of Senet, an ancient Egyptian game of royal appeal (and perhaps even the primogenitor of modern backgammon) that was discovered in the tombs of pharaohs; Hnefatafl, a Norse precursor to chess; and Calculi, a Roman game that strikingly resembled a later game commonly known as checkers; to modern electronic games that are nearly omnipresent in our current day and age, the human race has continually striven for new and improved ...

And not simply for the purpose of destroying them later; he sincerely loved the act of constructing elaborate infrastructures from blocks and other household toys. So he reckoned that it would be a good idea to make a game that allowed players to do just this, but on a computer. Not even he was prepared for what came after. Released four years later, in 1989, SimCity became one of the most innovative and popular games ever. Selling over 5 million in the years since it has been released, SimCity was a game that just about everyone could enjoy. It was not overly violent, so paren ...

Juvenile Crime - 695 words
Juvenile crime rates have nearly doubled in most countries. In the news we keep hearing about youngsters got mixed up in shady affairs and committing petty crimes. Firstly they just steal an apple from the market stands, then rob a small shop, next day we learn about a 17-year-old kid who killed his classmates. People are concerned and rightly so. That's all what we do or maybe give them a harsh punishment. It seems that the problem has only focused on punishment and very little on prevention or intervention. There is no single cause of violence but we can certainly list a lot of risk factors, which increase the development of delinquent behavior. These include child abuse and family disinte ...

Many modern artists use high technology equipment in their works. Whereas traditionally artists used a pencil or brush to make beautiful works of art, artists in the early twenty-first century are now using sound, video or computer generated images. Digital art developed from simple patterns and shapes made using computer programs to finished works of art which can look as realistic as a watercolour or oil painting. Modern art exhibitions often include more videos and installations than traditional painting or drawings. Even artists which use traditional techniques increasingly use modern technology such as the internet to display their works and communicate with other artists. Modern techno ...
