Daily Quest #8

In the Game Theories article, the author states “he (Castronova) is dismayed by how the real world has bled into the virtual one.”  Could this be arguing that the game has emphasized an affordance pointed out by Murray-spatial? Spatial is all about metaphors (like folders on Chrome) and collapsing distances. Could you argue that the game has a spatial affordance due to collapsing the virtual and real world in the economy sense?

  1. I *love* this question. Count it. I’m not sure I can give you a definitive answer – 😉 – because it’s really a complex and creative way to look at this reading. But it’s a great one and maybe we can talk about it a little in class today. 🙂
