HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO THROW PLAGUE-INFESTED COWS AT YOUR OPPONENTS?

Angela Schwarz



 

Computer games with historical content are not only an essential part of today's entertainment and media landscape, but also of historical culture. They differ from other popular forms of representation of history primarily in their interactivity.


What insights does the investigation of the medium offer for historical science, which has so far hardly dealt with computer games?


This anthology provides a variety of answers, because the historical-scientific analyzes of the individual contributions cover the main game genres as well as the various historical epochs. The author not only proves the diversity of history popularization in computer games, but at the same time the need to record, classify and interpret it.
