Emptiness in Video Games

"Emptiness in Video Games"

July 9, 2023
I talk about past video games that use large swathes of emptiness in their design and how it contributes to an almost meditative emotional quality that is lacking from current mainstream games whose design philosophy instead emphasizes massive amounts of content. Games mentioned include: The Wind Waker, Dark Souls, Kingdom Hearts, Penn and Teller's Desert Bus, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.
