Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, I'm a Classicist, and I doing some research looking at depictions of the Classical World in new media.
One of the things I would like to look into is the classical world in computer games, and trying to save my subject from people who insist on writing about it who have never actually played the game and have no real knowledge of computer games and the processes behind decisions and whatnot (they generally just treat it like films and there are different things going on which actually make a difference in this area of reception studies).
While I've managed to get a pretty hefty list through my own knowledge and some google-fu, I know that you guys on PA will know of a load of games I've never even heard of.
If you know anything, can you post the title and console the game's on (and if you want to let me know how it uses depictions of the classical world it will be a help as a starting point).
EDIT: to save from any confusion, Classical World = ancient Greece and Rome
EDIT 2: It's not just setting, but any game that uses any aspect pertaining to ancient Greece and Rome (i.e. mythology, character names, etc). Also, it doesn't matter if it was the worse game to have been vomited up upon this earth, that's actually quite useful in terms of the topic, though if there are decent games, that's also good
