in the 20th century and the ‘fine-motor-skills- digital sports’ that are on the rise today. Traditional sports are characterized by a movement towards standardized, rationalized, medialized and commercialized competitive arenas. When we view esports through the lens of sportification theory and compare it to historical examples from other sports, current developments in competitive computer gaming (e. g. esports) come across as the latest addition in a relatively long tradition of activities that have gone through sportification processes. We argue that

, how such a transfer of urban, archi- tectural- and spatial structures or configurations in general appears in regard to the visual and navigational aspects. This idea has already been raised by the Norwegian game researcher Espen Aarseth, who in 2001 wrote in a key essay of computer game studies that spaces in video games must be under- stood as allegories,6 hence as metaphors, that have been made interactive. Inspired by this idea, Jenkins’ term of “narrative architecture” can be revised, as a narration not specific to computer games, which first and foremost

needed. Gamified applications for businesses were originally conceived within a framework of product development and design (Deterding et al. 2011), similar to the configuration of the computer game industry today, focusing on product sales and surveying potential markets. The original approach attempts to condition users through reward mechanics with the purpose of ‘hooking’ players to the gamified service, based on the general belief that “[v]ariable-rate reinforcement is effective at shaping a steady increase in the desired behaviour, apparently affecting the

Prizes, Endorsements and Recommendations: Positive Regulation of Computer Games FELIX RACZKOWSKI Media regulation is a nebulous concept with vastly different meanings, depending on the involved institutions and parties, the practices and procedures that are em- ployed and the issues that are to be addressed through them. In this chapter I am interested in computer game regulation insofar as it can be considered a govern- mental strategy following Foucault, which implies that there is a specific form of productivity at play in the way computer

artistic artefacts in a “space machine”: This aspect of space is central to understanding computer games as a medium. Historically, since the game Tennis for Two in 1958, the computer game image has moved ever fur ther into space—from simple, two-dimensional representa- tions to highly complex, three-dimensional environments. [...] The subjective view of the user into the space of the computer game is called the arbitrary perspective. This new kind of gaze concludes the exploration of the computer game as a space machine.3 Schwingeler has also researched spatial
