Episode 106 – Conventions of Simulation and Abstraction in Video Games

BC Podcast 106 (Wide)

Jim, Doc, and Chris pick apart common video game conventions. Which should we keep? And which are better left in the past? When does it make sense to abstract a real-world feature? And when should we aim for a pure simulation? Is there a happy medium? Plus, reflections of Empires: Age of Discovery, ARMS and Netflix Castlevania.
