JungKyuKim_Ch4_JUUL_Q

Recently the board game have been very popular, this is a kind of nonelecronic game which requires just paper things or dice for enjoying. I love board games. (E.g. rummikub, Robo77, the Clue, even cross-word, etc) Whenever playing that, I feel that this game teach me about the real world related other’s mentality or my attitude toward the world.

Juul, however, stated that “The main difference between the computer game and nonelectronic is that computer games add automation and complexity – they can uphold and calculate game rules on their own, thereby allowing for richer game worlds; this also lets them keep pace. So computer games create more worlds, more real time, and more single player games than nonelecronic games. (p.140)

When I play ‘StarCraft’- a real time strategy game, I have never played alone. Every time I play this game with someone I’ve never met in the battle net which provided from game company. That meaning is that I am not playing against computer but other person.

My asking, eventually, is that “Do you agree that computer game create more worlds, more real time, and more single player than nonelectronic?”


P.S I have 'rummikub', if you want to play or borrow, just let me know. :D
It's really exciting game.

I AGREE WITH U JK A PAPER GAME HAS MORE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE PLAYERS, SINCE
THESE TYPE OF GAMES HAVE TO BE PLAYED
FACE TO FACE WITH A REAL PERSON INSTEAD
OF PLAYING AGAINST A SET OF BITS.

Your question, "Do you agree that computer game create more worlds, more real time, and more single player than nonelectronic?" deserves a resounding YES. Only children. People who have no one to play with can find all kinds of people with games that connect to the internet. XBox Live. I've played a couple times (some war game of my roomie's) and there are all kinds of people, mostly guys, ranging from about 7 or 8 to "older" guys in their 30's. You're all on a military "team" strategizing to take out the enemy "team". All different languages too, talking to one another with headsets over the internet.

Absolutely I understan you, Matt. But I want to talk two things, 'interpersonal communication and C-M-C' and 'who/what is my counterpartner in the game?'

When you play a computer or internet game, who want to play with computer? I think no matter what use media (internet or air as channel), communication has same shape. The reason to use and enjoy game is that human is our partner or enemy (sometimes not).

Game is just game. all game(electronic or non) has same goal though its detail chracteristic is different.
