This is the result of the research and a series of updates and selections by the art critic, Ricard Mas, constructed at the historic crossroads between sources and narrative innovation in video games. He portrays a cultural transformation, from a screen projected for a single reader to a shared creation online to massively consumed role-playing games. This technoscientific jump, led by physics, has fully influenced artistic visual approach and new fiction in two ways: in games of great complexity connected to an individual brain, and in games that build a social brain online.
