There are two ways to lớn explain what exactly a đoạn Clip game is: the easy, simple way, và the really complex way.

The easy answer is that a Clip game is interactive sầu digital entertainment that you “play” via a computer, a game console (like the Xbox or PlayStation) or a phone or tablet. There, you can go trang chủ now because class is over and we’re done. That really does sum it all up — but it’s not a very good explanation o

f everything going on here.

As the new person covering đoạn phim games for wca-america.com, I aim to lớn provide good explanations for you, our readers. So I’m going lớn dive sầu into the more complicated explanation here.

The label “video clip game” casts an absurdly large net over a whole lot of different things. There are a million different kinds of đoạn Clip games, và each of them sorta functions as its own size of entertainment truyền thông. Since we don’t have concrete labels for all those individual types — just loose genre descriptions — we just say everything is a đoạn Clip game. It’s confusing, even to those of us you’d call gamers.

If a person were khổng lồ somehow grow up only on video games & then discover later in life all the other forms of entertainment we regularly consume, that person would probably be confused as to lớn why we consider film and television distinct types of truyền thông media. Compared khổng lồ the scope of everything that counts as đoạn Clip games, movies and TV are indistinguishable from each other.

Video games are sports that take place in a computer. They’re interactive TV shows và interactive movies. They’re digital board games và thẻ games. They’re rough simulations of everyday life including, probably, whatever you bởi for a living. Some video games are works of artistic expression. Others don’t know what artistic expression is or why you would care about whatever that is.

The “game” part has been a sticking point in recent years in endless online debates about whether this thing that is definitely interactive sầu entertainment but has no skill component is truly a video game. Whatever the flavor of the week in that argument is, of course, it’s definitely a Clip game, because if “World of Warcraft” & “NBA 2K” và “League of Legends” và “The Last Of Us” & “Farming Simulator” & “Super Mario Bros” and “Candy Crush Saga” are all video games, then “Firewatch,” in which you walk around a forest clicking on stuff until the plot progresses, is also a Clip game.

None of those things are really lượt thích any of the others. But that doesn’t matter because everything counts.

Even within a single video clip game there is very often more than one kind of video game. The annual “điện thoại tư vấn of Duty” series, which does have sầu a meaningful cultural footprint, has both a linear, story-focused portion that you play alone and context-miễn phí competitive sầu multiplayer. They often also include a third cooperative mode about fighting zombies or aliens. These are all considered the same genre of Clip game, but they’re really separate products that appeal to distinct types of players.

I lượt thích storytelling art, so each year when I play the new “Gọi of Duty” I gravitate toward the story mode and don’t pay so much attention to lớn the multiplayer stuff, which is not art và has no aspiration toward being art. But the art portion and the not-art portion still combine to lớn make a single game.

“NBA 2K,” also an annual franchise, is even more fractured than “Gọi of Duty”, with modes where you just play basketball, a team management simulation & even a collectible card game in there, và most players pick one mode & stiông chồng with it.

There is a weird sort of solidarity in throwing every bit of interactive sầu digital entertainment under that one umbrella. “Everybody’s a người chơi,” people say, because it is true that most people in the Western world have sầu played something that counts as a đoạn phim game recently. So sometoàn thân who has never played anything except “Puzzle & Dragons” on their phone counts as a người chơi.

We consequently get to live under the delusion that “Uncharted,” a franchise that carries plenty of cachet among mỏi the core gaming audience, has some kind of greater cultural relevance even though only a few million people have sầu played those games. It’s validation for a real time sink of a hobby that is still predominantly restricted khổng lồ the domain name of us nerds, which is why I wrote this explainer.
