Camera Ludica

While we have recently noted that videogames usurp the term "engine" from the Automobile Age to describe specific sections of programming that drive a particular area of the game, it should also be noted that in sports videogames we are offered from the Television Age the option of playing the game from various "camera angles". Of course, this is interesting since no camera actually exists. It is a matter of players choosing a particular point within the engine-driven model from which they will produce/consume the game.
