Hybrid Content: Narratology/Ludology

Hybrid Content: Narratology/Ludology
We won’t have time to discuss the concepts of Narratology and Ludology in video games this week, so this will truly be hybridized content. Research these terms and the way they have been applied to video games (both academically and in the popular press). After doing enough research that you feel you have an understanding of the terms, present an argument about the split between gameplay and narratives in modern video games. Then, compare current games with ones from the past, and discuss what you can learn about the changing relationship between narratology and ludology through this comparison. Use specific examples from either your gaming experience or from the research you did on narratology/ludology. Link to your research and to these examples. Initial post of around 300 words
