The class will provide a broad history of games from the origins of games in 3500 B.C. to video games of the 1970s to contemporary console game systems. The class will focus on game mechanics; explore narrative structures, player expectations and response, and game technology. Games are affected by, and influence, social, cultural, and political events. Through a series of lectures and assignments, students will experience the universal development of graphic design through its history.
