Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - movie und Fernsehen, notice: 1,0, Universität Leipzig (Institut für Kommunikations- und Medienwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Einführung in die movie- und Fernsehanalyse - Empirische Forschung II, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Videospiele beziehungsweise „Computerspiele sind interaktive Medienangebote, die zum Zweck der Unterhaltung hergestellt und genutzt werden" (Klimmt 2006: 16). Obwohl die Entstehung der Videospiele schon in den 50er Jahren begann, konnte bei ihnen erst in den letzten Jahrzehnten ein ernst zu nehmender Aufstieg zur Unterhaltungsform festgestellt werden (Hartmann 2004: 7). Spätestens im 21. Jahrhundert schafften es die Computerspiele dann, sich „als feste Größe in der Medienlandschaft (zu) etablier(en)" (ebd.) und eine Industrie entstehen zu lassen. Obwohl Videospiele den Ruf der „seichte(n) Unterhaltung für Jugendliche" (ebd.) besitzen, konkurrieren sie mit den anderen Unterhaltungsformen movie, Fernsehen und Literatur, used to be nicht zuletzt an den hohen Einnahmen und Produktionskosten eines Videospiels liegt, die sich mit denen aus der Filmbranche vergleichen lassen (ebd.).

In Kapitel 2 schaffe ich dafür die theoretische Grundlage und gehe auf die verschiedenen Ebenen zwischen Videospielen und Filmen ein. Darüber hin
