The heat wave we're having outside is the perfect time to hang out in the air-conditioned CVGA to check out the new games that just arrived for the PlayStation VR that we got towards the end of the Winter term.
Here is our list of most popular games during the Winter term. We had our usual blend of sports games and first person shooters at the top of the list, with a roleplaying game and several games for the Wii & Wii U making an appearance as well. Our PlayStation 4 consoles were popular during the term, but didn't make the list because people tended to try several different games on them rather than focusing on just one, as was the case for the Xbox One.
Late in the Winter term, several students from Kelli Wood's class (HISTART 194: Video Games - Cultures in Play) presented their final projects in the Duderstadt Gallery, in an exhibition entitled, "Are Video Games Art?" The exhibition included several meaningful presentations, and highlighted some of the game systems in the CVGA. We wanted to share some pictures from the event with you.
The CVGA has now been serving students, faculty, staff and the public for over eight years. From its founding to today, the CVGA has attracted press attention for its unique service. In honor of U-M’s 200th anniversary, we’d like to highlight the CVGA’s growth through a sampling of press articles as well as memories from our own blog.
Now that 2016 has passed, it can be interesting to look back at which games were most popular over the course of the year.
If you’re familiar with the video gaming community you may know that Final Fantasy XV came out yesterday, 10 years after the announcement was first made. What you may not know is that we here at the CVGA have many of the original games in the series.
Have you always wanted to take a course about video games? Need to fill an elective slot for Winter term? Since most students are picking out which courses they'd like to take, we thought we'd share a list of interesting courses being taught next term. There are many other good ones out there as well, but here are a few to get you started.
