Lecture: Urban Planning, Architecture and Video Game Space

This week & next week:

D.Cox will discuss basic spatial theory lecture comparing classic film texts such as Hitchcock's "Rear Window", "Dial M for Murder" as well as films such as "Dark Passage", "Sunset Boulevard" and "Blue Velvet" to video-games which rely for their effectiveness upon the user 'knowing their way around' the game environment as if it were actual space.
How cues such as sound, shadow, and other elements reinforce a player's sense of
"being somewhere" in “HALO“, “FAR CRY“, SILENT HILL, RESIDENT EVIL, "Myst", "Freak Show", "Bad Day on the Midway" and "Cosmology of Kyoto".
