Session Name:

Videogames Are Better Than Sports: A Thought- Experimental Journey into VIDEOBALL


Would basketball be more exciting with two balls? Would soccer be even more popular with three balls? Well, maybe, though they'd also be illegible -- near-impossible to spectate, officiate, or televise. This is where the ice-cold computer-precision of an electronic game begins to rise in superiority over analog sports. Join Action Button Entertainment director and VIDEOBALL designer Tim Rogers on a tour through various frustrating thought-experiments one might encounter on the quest to triangulate The Perfect Sport (spoiler: it's not cricket, it's probably a videogame, and it's hopefully VIDEOBALL (it might not be VIDEOBALL)).
