Vortrag von Prof. Dr. Martin Roth

Over the last decades, videogames have developed into a transregionally successful entertainment medium and increasingly recognized space of cultural and artistic expression. But in what ways are they also spaces of political imagination and play? In this presentation, I will revisit the development of gaming culture in Japan, starting with early arcade machine, and gradually diversifying into so-called AAA titles, indie games, social games, and games as services, which finally have radically changed the concept of a game work. Considering a range of examples, I suggest that the location of play has shifted from games, to other digital spaces.
