Text topic: Studies – Influence of Science Fiction on Modern Culture
Text author: Љиљана Гавриловић
The text deliberates on the motion of narratives between SF literature and digital games and their connectivity, from the appearance of the first digital games to modern network games intended for large number of players. The narratives which move from SF texts to games and vice versa, which place games into narratives, reflect not only real social relations under which they have occurred, but also offer (possible) solutions for the problems of the modern world, primarily those caused by neoliberal politics. In them, the modern concept of a self-sufficient individual as a generator of change is abandoned, insisting on the idea that success may be attained only in cooperation and coordination of a large number of interested actors, displacing the battlefield from the plane of the physical to the plan of the digital.
