From March 31st ~ April 3rd, 2016, 3rd-year Doctoral Candidate Christopher Michael Yap attended the annual Society for Cinema and Media Studies 2016 Conference (SCMS 2016) in Atlanta, Georgia. On the last day of the conference, he presented on a panel entitled, "Playful Thinking: Explorative Perspectives on Textuality in Japanese Videogames" alongside Martin Roth (Leipzig University), Michael Craig (UC Berkeley), and Douglas Schules (Rikkyo University). Chris' portion of the talk was entitled, "Tale of the Snake: The Meta-narrative of Hideo Kojima and the Metal Gear Franchise." In his talk, Chris argues that the overall design of the games in the Metal Gear franchise, which is characterized by frequent, intentional 4th-wall-breaks, invites players to become overly involved in altering the narrative of the game itself. When series creator Hideo Kojima inserts himself into the game as a character, players have the unauthorized ability to freely modify and utilize Kojima as a story element. Chris argues that when player-modders hack the game assets in order to alter the game story, this constitutes a new dimension of interactive authorship which can potentially become increasingly more complex when considering that such game narratives can even be modified remotely by the publishers themselves via downloadable content patches (DLC). The talk was followed by a healthy amount of interest and discussion around these new ideas.
