As video games are products of human creation, do we see these two concepts in gaming? If present, how do video games integrate these concepts in their story and mechanics? Are games necessarily limited by innate concepts present in our physical world? If absent, is this media type capable of producing fantastical worlds devoid of natural and our positive law with a cogent story?
Although my panel status is still pending, I wanted to post the fundamentals of my topic. While I am vying for one of the limited video game panel slots, I think this would be a fun panel--with lots of screenshots from various popular game franchises to illustrate concepts--as it's probably something that's not yet been presented.
My qualifications in proposing this panel: Aside from being a gamer and anime fan, I'm a licensed attorney in two jurisdictions. While in law school, I focused on criminal law and international law. The latter focus, in particular, centered on international criminal law, the law of armed conflict, and nuclear weaponry. Both concentrations, and the very nature of law school, had coursework based in philosophy. As an undergrad, I studied criminal justice and political science. Like law school, both of these heavily centered upon a philosophical foundation directly applicable to this panel.
