Final Project: coverage of 1980’s video games!
Sadly the semester in the 1980’s has come to a close, but working on the final with Karsen was totally RADICAL!
For our final project, we decided to cover video game of the decade because it just felt right and we were both really interested in the fun culture of arcades and things like that from the decade. When I was younger, my older brother got our family a vintage Konami arcade game for christmas and we were obsessed with it. We decided to cover a couple different things in our final project and I hope you enjoy!
One of the things we looked into is the video game crash of the 1983, which was one of my favorite aspects of the final project, so I decided to dedicate an entire blog post too.
The next part of our final project is an event flyer about bringing back the most popular video games of the decade for a night and seeing who still has their skills.
Finally, we chose to make one aspect of project an interactive quiz, where you answer a series of questions and it reveals which popular video game you are from the decade. We wanted to do something a little bit different and give everyone a chance to explore the decade!
Overall, I really enjoyed working on this project, especially since I’ve been sitting at home. We created a video about the decade in games, a digital poster about a ‘hypothetical’ game night, and an interactive quiz that will ask a series of questions and determine which video game character you are from the decade, with a short description. I think we did really good with the materials and we were able to be really creative, while working well as a team!
