Hey everyone, Adam here, posting a collection of my weekly twitch streams where I focus on non-violent games, which I’m defining as “rewarding the player for intellectual and/or emotional engagement, rather than providing dopamine for combat and other violent accomplishments”.
The goal is to show the breadth of what the medium of video games can offer, and subsequently to dispel the myth that video games exist purely as a way to experience some kind of macho power fantasy the way a series like Call of Duty does. Video games are a medium, and one that arguably could provide even more varied experiences than film or books–two mediums that would never be assumed to only provide a single, harmful experience. So join me as I take you through games that provide wonderful alternatives to that type of game, from being empathy engines, to being a teacher of frustration tolerance, to elevating problem-solving skills– and more!
I had a big night Wednesday evening so i didn’t have the energy for a very long steam on Thursday, and i wasn’t prepared to finish Fright of the Bumblebees so quickly Saturday so that was shorter too.
