We have won this battle ;) Modding and Swapping as a Utopian Video Game Practice
In this article we will have a look into the utopian potential of modding. Modding is a bundle of practices that modify an existing video game, bringing one`s own creations into the industrial produced video game space. The article starts with an example that will show different aspects of modding, followed by two image sequences that will highlight both the critical potential and the creation of utopian space within vid-eo game worlds. I will finish this article by defining this utopian potential as a fundamental aspect of video games, one that marks it core modus operandi and brings forward the specificity of the medium.
