About this item

The Play Versus Story Divide in Game Studies presents fourteen critical essays on the debates between academics approaching video games from the perspective of story and those approaching video games from the perspective of play--the former called “narratologists” and the latter named “ludologists.” These essays both explore and encourage discourse between the two approaches to digital game studies in order to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the issue for readers (and players), as well as to encourage game scholars to engage with their discipline in ways that take the full range of perspectives into account.
