Bioshock and the Post-Modern Novel l That Gamer Hub

"Video Games and the Post Modern Novel – “A man chooses, a slave obeys”.

As phenomenon, games and post modernism both arose around the same time. Post modernism is certainly tied strongly to the rise of technology, with the relatively new mediums of television and film allowing all kinds of new ways to play with the relationship of author and consumer that previously belonged only to the novel. It is a natural development, then, to go from the book, to the film and, in only the last two decades; to a newer medium and arguably the most post-modern, video games. Why is it the most post modern? Because the ‘reader’ is literally in control."

Darcy from That Gamer Hub (BioShock, Culture)
