Games and Bereavement: How Video Games Represent Attachment, Loss, and Grief
Transcript Verlag, 15 jan. 2019 - 200 pagina's
How can videogames portray love and loss? 'Games and Bereavement' answers this question by looking at five videogames and carrying out a participatory design study with grievers. Sabine Harrer highlights possible connections between grief and videogames, arguing that game design may help make difficult personal feelings tangible. After a brief literary review of grief concepts and videogame theory, the book deep-dives into examples of tragic inter-character relationships from videogame history. Building on these examples, the book presents a case study on pregnancy loss as a potential grief experience that can be validated through game design dialogue.
