Sample text

I could have orientated this book around computer games, and so included Metris. This would not evade the definitional problems being encountered here of course; in fact they would probably be worse given that the category of computer games seems even harder to pin down than videogames. All that can be said here, I think, is that videogame just is in this respect a nominal category, and that the suspicion that Metris might act as a counter-example to the present definition makes the mistake of crediting such cultural categories with a real existence they just do not have.

When formalizing narratology, ludology, and interactive fiction theory in this way, it became clear that none really worked out as a real definition because there were obvious counter-examples of videogames without the specified feature, or items with the specified feature which were nevertheless not videogames. Perhaps, though, the fault lies not with the theories themselves, but with the way in which I formalized their content into a definition. In the definition of art debate, a number of recent philosophers of the arts have argued that an essentialist mode of definition is not the only definitional game in town: disjunctive definitions are also possible (Davies, 2004; Dutton, 2006).

If the sense of interactive was specified more restrictively, so as to capture the ways in which videogames are interactive, but to exclude other interactive artifacts, it is not clear that the term could stretch to cover all and only videogames because the interaction involved in the various kinds of videogames seems quite diverse. Tetris is interactive in virtue of being a challenge to sensory-motor abilities set within a goal-directed framework. Microsoft Flight Simulator is interactive in the sense of allowing the player to explore and interact with a fictional world through simulated flight.
