summary What is videogame matter? This essay examines the matter of videogames in relationship to architectural design, and advances a definition that videogame matter is: meta, modular, indexical, and distributive. These attributes support an argument that the materiality of the videogame has a markedly different set of properties than the matter of the physical world. A definition of videogame matter is critical to understanding the value of design within virtual environments, which then aids architects and designers utilizing the immersive environments of the videogame for representation, design and collaboration.
