Sports from a Game Designer’s view

Western culture brought back to life during the XXth century something that seemed forgotten since the Greek times: Sports. It’s undeniable the huge cultural impact these had since the conception of the Modern Olympics by Baron Pierre du Cubertain on Athens 1896.

Sports are usually games that require the use of the body, but games after all. It’s interesting to read on how the design of Football (Soccer for all americans out there), Basketball or Golf had evolved throughout the years and adapted to different environments and playing styles.

What do you think about videogames considered as modern sports by some in our industry? How the sports of the future will be designed?

Two new Art games to check: Loop and Chess!
