Independent Thought and the Horrific Consequences Thereof: 

User Created-Content and the Evolution of the Narrative in Video Games

 Introduction

This is going to be short, as our video also serves as a broad introduction to our presentation.  Since the beginning of this course, we have found ourselves fascinated with the advent of user-authored experiences using videogames, such as modifications and machinima.  Our research has explored the state, psychology, and continuing evolution of this emergent form of drama and will feature three short PowerPoint presentations on such.  We will also be featuring a introductory video segment.
