Reflective Writing For Concept Experience #2

From doing the Concept Experience assignment i can see what Licklider meant when he was talking about where technology needed to go. From seeing how old the article was to what kinds of technology we know have his concepts now seem within reach or they have been reached already. The concept of trie memory is much like the file storage system we have on our computers today. This link between the files is also like the concept experience assignment where we used links to get from one webpage to another. This is why to illustrate the assignment i went with a tree diagram to show the branching off of ideas and webpages and how they can relate to each other.

Atlus

Role Playing Video games

So i decided to then look at the game genre itself. Now role playing games is a large genre with many smaller genres in it so i decided to get more specific.

Final Fantasy XIII

final

The action role playing made me think of the well known game series final fantasy and i wanted to get more information on one of its newer releases. The game was known for having a strong female protagonist who was unlike other female protagonists coming out around this time.

Protagonist

With such strong emphasis on the protagonist in the Final Fantasy game it made me look up what it actually means to be a protagonist and nothing in here really shocked me like i was hoping for.

Antagonist

anta

Well no good story has a protagonist without an antagonist to really drive home the story so i decided to look up antagonist as well.

Massively Multiplay Online Role-Playing Games(MMORPG)

mass

Lastly i decided to look up another genre of game inside the of the role playing games. This genre has really been growing extremely fast over the years and is probably one of the most popular genres in gaming.
