Raymond’s presentation was about Videogames. I found it entertaining because I play videogames. I was surprised at how media usually portrays videogames in a negative light because some videogames have graphic violence and sexual content. Even though there are many videogames that do not contain violence of sexual content. I was also glad to learn that gamers have made use of New Media to defend videogames. It was interesting to learn that the ESRB rating system was only implemented because of games like Doom and Mortal Kombat. It is incredible how much videogames have converged with new media. Now on many gaming networks there are socializing features similar to those found in facebook, twitter, etc.
I like the pamphlet that Raymond gave out as well. It was very informative, and I didn’t realize how little PC videogames sold compared to console videogames.
