The difference is between books, and video games are apparent, right. Well, we’ll explore that in a bit. But first, I want to acknowledge the state of this website, which I promise does make sense with the overall books versus video games topic.
The short of it is I stopped caring about writing, and I stopped caring really about reading, then I fell back in love with video games, which was a love for my childhood. So total 180 right books of nurses video games well maybe not so much allow me to explore this dichotomy via theatre.
What books have words and video games have also worded fallout 4, for example, has 111 thousand lines of dialogue. Which if you put those into the average paperback book, Which contains about 35 lines per page.
That’s a book that’s three thousand one hundred and seventy-one pages long and keep in mind. that’s just dialogue that doesn’t even include exposition which is all of this stuff that comes between dialogue scene
setting stuff like that.
But you don’t have to read those fallout four lines. They’re closed captioned. But, they are also spoken to you via audio. And I don’t think anyone’s ever heard of audio for that book.
I have to make some assumptions that people aren’t just creating audiobooks, putting them on the hard drive, and never doing anything
with them. Maybe there is a very much a thriving for passion community of audiobook producers, and perhaps there is I don’t want to assume otherwise, and I don’t want to get into a debate about the benefits of audiobook listening versus actual book reading.
However, if you are interested in that debate, I have linked a Forbes article about Is Listening to Audio Books Really the Same as Reading. This is a perfect place to jump off and start exploring that topic on your own if you would like.
But novels deal with emotion and have a more substantial narrative investment than video games. I mean, there’s not a single theory of the mind that explains the brain’s response to narration, even though the medium of I can tell that probably. It’s based on the look you’re giving me. This is the look I’m sharing because yes, there is the theory is called the theory of mind.
Lisa’s sunshine describes the theory of mind in her book why we read fiction, summarising that as a sustained representation of numerous interactive reasons.
The novel feeds the powerful representation hungry complex of cognitive adaptations whose very condition is a constant social stimulus deliver. Either by direct interactions with other people or and this is the crucial part imaginary approximations of such businesses.
Imaginary approximations of such interactions that don’t sound restrictive to the novel to me video games fit. well into that group I even
write an article about the theory of mind.
I don’t talk about video games. But I talk a little bit more about the theory of mind and what you would find in this book. If you pick it up and I suggested that you knew it’s perfect.
What books are more available, and they have a lower barrier to entry. That’s reasonable, I think. that could be right ebooks have historically been
easier to get ahold of than video games.
But that’s rapidly changing. We all have a video game console in our pockets, and dedicated handhelds have been around since the late 1970s with like the game and watch system and things like that.
And it became prevalent in 1999. when Nintendo released its Gameboy video games and books, both can be at home on the subway or an aeroplane or a relaxing beach.
Just don’t get sand in your battery compartment, and that’s not a euphemism for other places. You can get sand when you’re on the beach. It should be, though. But video games can be pretty dumb.
I mean, you’ve got to admit that right they have puzzle games. That has no emotion or narrative plus there are those clicker tech mobile games, and those require no real cognitive investment at all, not really.
You’re probably sensing a trend here. Right, I set it up with a fake dumb guy kind of highfalutin moustachioed look, and I come back with a rash. Now it’s my thing. It’s what I’m doing here.
Sure, that may be kind of a little bit true in some senses. But for every book that attempts to be intellectual, for example, Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, a book that I still have yet to finish no matter how often.
I try there is plenty of entertainment-focused ones to consider as space falls, the book based on the movie by someone named Bob Stein. I’m assuming that your book is probably attainment driven. I haven’t
read it yet. It’s probably a safe assumption.
The point is the medium itself is not the message, and the reception of that medium is not universally helped or hindered by its delivery device. of
course, I’m not going to say that the medium doesn’t have an influence people still go to art museums even though they can look up any painting they want.
That’s ever been painted in the history of the world on their handheld video game device in their pocket if they want to. Now I’m not dismissing books. I read books till I’ve started reading more books over the past couple of years since that original 2014 February video evidenced by the Shelf back there.
I have tons and tons of books. I read a lot. I’m just defending video games and, perhaps more importantly, defending my ability to choose what this blog is and what it may become in the future for all of you who read this article.
in the past, for book content, I ask you to stick around for a while you may
enjoy what you see, and if you’ve come to this blog explicitly based on my charming personality, we’ll stick around.
Next time I’ve got some books to play and some video games to reading. so
