What makes a game good? Or bad? Or better? Building on the ETC Press books and journal and the success of live sessions, Ralph Vituccio (Asst Teaching Professor at Carnegie Mellon University) will analyze Project Syria, an immersive journalism piece, for the audience to help highlight the virtual reality experience and open up a discussion about the unique impact VR can have. The goal is to help develop and define a literacy of games and interactive media as well as a sense of their value as an experience. These sessions are not a part of the selection and jurying of the festival, instead they are purely to inspire discussion amongst festival attendees.
