Newman, J (2016) 'Walkthrough.' In: Lowood, H and Guins, R, eds. Debugging game history: a critical lexicon. MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, pp. 409-417. ISBN 9780262034197

Item Type: Book Chapter or Section
Additional Information:

Even as the field of game studies has flourished, critical historical studies of games have lagged behind other areas of research. Histories have generally been fact-by-fact chronicles; fundamental terms of game design and development, technology, and play have rarely been examined in the context of their historical, etymological, and conceptual underpinnings. This volume attempts to “debug” the flawed historiography of video games. It offers original essays on key concepts in game studies, arranged as in a lexicon—from “Amusement Arcade” to “Embodiment” and “Game Art” to “Simulation” and “World Building.”
