Intended for both newcomers who are curious about video games and experienced gamers who want to reflect on their passion, this course will explore what happens to stories, paintings, and films when they become the basis of massively multiplayer online games. The Lord of the Rings trilogy—the novels, films, and video game—are our central example of how “remediation” transforms familiar stories as they move across media.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ONLINE GAMES: LITERATURE, NEW MEDIA, AND NARRATIVE
Great juxtaposition of online game play and relevant classic literature. Interesting format. Makes the opposite of the usual boring lecture class.
An excellent insight in Literature through the modern medium of gaming.
A great course for any gamer who doesnt know much about litterature, or any avid reader who has never given games a chance. Or even better, for anyone who enjoys both!
Extremely interesting and course material that is one of a kind. Definitely a must learn if you have an interest in video games and literature!
