Changing Videogame’s Sports Storytelling

Game Happens 2019 – Conference
Friday 8 November, Afternoon Sessions

Sports in video games are represented either through simulators or as management games. There is a rich literature on sport as an interesting subject for anthropological, sociological and economical analysis. These studies present sport and football in particular as a rich expressive domain; this is the perspective that inspired Football Drama’s design, writing and build up which we will present.
