Out Of Bounds – Emergent Gameplay

Since the beginning of games as a medium, there was always a given uncertainty when it comes to authorial intent. Traditional media like film or music do not feature direct interactivity with systems in the same way games do; they are primarily tools of communication where a message is transmitted in code. They are a way to encode information, vague or specific, in a way that can be decoded by the recipient as long as the message is compatible with the key owned by them (our perception filters). (Battlefield 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Half-Life 2, Industry, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Warframe)

Always been my favorite part of older video games and probably the only thing worthwhile about the new Elder Scrolls games.
