We aren't talking about how games test your reflexes. What we discuss this week is how games simulate physical experiences and how those experiences add to our immersion in game worlds and heighten the drama in video game storytelling.

Despite games often being thought of as a mental exercpoise, they certainly have a physical component too.  We aren’t talking about how games test your reflexes, though. Instead, what we are interested in is how games simulate physical experiences and how those experiences add to our immersion in game worlds and heighten the drama in video game storytelling.
