My Video Game-First Impressions

My initial experience with Total War Medieval II was very exciting. For a previous history class, we had to define words and use different modes to describe them. For my vocab term, I was perusing youtube and saw a channel that had all sorts of historical battles through a video game, and I was jealous of the YouTuber and didn’t explore. However, this assignment allowed me to peruse games. I went into this task hoping to find a similar game to the one that YouTuber was playing, which I did. Going onto the beginning screen is very simple and did not overwhelm me as a gamer/student.

Opening Screen

The opening screen gave the options of a Tutorial, Grand Campaign, Customization, and Historical Battles (I am very excited to see what I can do with Historical Battles). I started with the tutorial and was pleased with the step-by-step instructions. It allowed me to fight a battle that would have been difficult for me to lose. This reminded me of the Well-Ordered Problems on page 35 of the Gee reading. After the battle was complete, I was introduced to the Campaign map.

Tutorial Campaign (Advisor in the top corner)

The campaign map had a figure in the upper right guiding me on decisions. The guide was not telling me which way to go but explained my options and the consequences of each action. My next step is to try the Grand Campaign, and I have the option to be England, Venice, France, Spain, or The Holy Roman Empire (Which is Germany). Let me know if anyone is leaning one way or the other!

Who should I be?!?!?!
