Jesper Juul i nowa książka

Kilka dni temu ukazała się kolejna książka znanego ludologa Jespera Juula pt. An Essay on the Pain of Playing Video Games.

"To begin with a confession: I am a sore loser. Something in me that demands that I win, beat, or complete every game I try, and that part of me is outraged and tormented whenever I fail to do so. Still, I play video games though I know I will fail, at least part of the time. On a higher level, I think I enjoy playing video games, but why does this enjoyment contain at its core something that I most certainly do not enjoy?"

(The Art of Failure preface)

The Art of Failure: An Essay on the Pain of Playing Video Games is my new book about failure in video games.

In The Art of Failure I ask: why do we do it? Why do we play video games even though they make us unhappy? The Art of Failure discusses the many possible explanations of this paradox, and while I propose an answer to the problem, the journey itself is meant to offer a new explanation of what it is that games do. The book combines personal confessions about failure with philosophy, game design analysis, psychology and fiction theory.
