Interpreting Games: Meaning Creation in the Context of Temporality and Interactivity


The concept of interpretation applied to texts, videos, pictures, posts and all other types of media is varied. Objects are open to different forms of interpretation and games, as objects of meaning, are no exception. Explicating meaning creation in games will create a better understanding of game functions and their effects. This study explores how games alter the process of meaning creation through investigating their detailed properties and differentiation from other forms of media as objects of interpretation. This study argues that understanding meaning creation in games entails more than an examination of the presentation layer by a deeper analysis that considers interactivity and temporality. It contends that due to the interactive nature of games, the role of player participation is vital because gamers influence the operative mechanics of games and hence their meanings.

Investigating the effect of governance on unemployment: a case of South Asian countries

the response comes back to the horizontal/zero line, one can say that the response is temporal and will subside in the given time periods that take the response to come to zero line. If the response deviates from zero line, we can comment that the impulse has a nonconvergent and nontemporal response to the shock. It can be related to theory by seeing if some policy shocks produce temporary effects or a longer and accumulating effect adding up over time and changing the pattern of the economic changes. These responses are graphically represented in Figure 3
