For my project I will be focusing on how video games utilize history, folklore, and pop culture within the games. There are a number of genres that lend themselves to this: from Sid Meier’s Civilization series to Call of Duty. My project will highlight some of the ways developers have used history as a means for entertainment. The project I built for the previous course was a brief history of video games in general, and I am debating whether to add a second exhibit within that site or creating a separate instance of Omeka to build this particular project.
