‘Framing Violence: an analysis of its construction and possible functions in video games
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis will focus specifically on the framing of violence in video games. I will conduct an empirical analysis of the video game Battlefield 3 then relate the findings of my empirical research and analysis of the game to the broader academic discussion concerning video games, violence and framing. The central question of this thesis is: How is violence in video games framed diagnostically and prognostically and in what ways could this framing possibly influence the perception of violence in the real world?
