Example text

Bodily motion is highly contextual. Local behavior is subject to multiple simultaneous organizing principles that are not intrinsic to the agent in question. 12 Section 1 General Wisdom These principles are what we call situations. An approach that takes all of these themes seriously is called a situationist game AI. Contextual Animation The situationist theme with the most immediate relevance to the challenges of controlling characters on the latest generation of consoles is the demand that all bodily actions be fully situated in the context that they take place.

Situationism in Sociology As it turns out, sociologists have been wrestling with a very similar problem to this reductionist/constructivist dilemma for almost as long as their field has existed. One of the fundamental debates in sociological theory regards whether the structure of society should be viewed as the voluntary creation of a collaboration of free-willed individual subjects, or whether the apparently free choices made by each individual member of society should be viewed as primarily determined by the existing structures of the society in which they exist.

A quick review of related themes in sociology and psychology sets up the last part of the article, exploring the notion of what we call a situationist game AI that is capable of meeting this hybrid challenge. T Reductionism Versus Constructivism in Game Content During the production of game content, one section of a game level might require a highly custom set piece interaction with a group of NPCs (non-player characters). Most likely, a level designer has authored this content for the purposes of advancing the game’s story, rather than being created directly by an AI programmer.
