Games Versus Reality? How Game Designers Deal with Current Topics of Geography Education

Joelle-Denise Lux, Alexandra Budke, Emmanuel Guardiola
2021 Multimodal Technologies and Interaction  
We found the most problematic one to be the prioritization of player expectations for the sake of perceived realism. This approach may lead to the depiction of stereotypes and common misconceptions.  ...  In many cases, the interviewees' approach to incorporating real-world issues can be regarded as beneficial for their games' educational potential, and some designers even pursued learning goals.  ...  This type of realism can again apply to completely fantastic settings as even in a fictional world, such as a science-fiction setting in another universe, outcomes of players' actions can be persistent  ...

Towards Designing Diegetic Gaze in Games: The Use of Gaze Roles and Metaphors
