Introduction This present invention pertains to introducing morality and epic storytelling into the realm of video games, resulting in video games with superior, deeper game play, expanded markets, and longer-lasting brands. The prior art demonstrates how others have failed and are failing to deliver more meaningful and engaging games endowed with epic storytelling.

Morality and deeper moral meaning

This present invention provides the missing key to realizing epic storytelling, deeper emotional involvement, and higher art in video games. What the experts have missed in the relatively nascent video game industry is that the center and circumference of epic story, everlasting art, and deeper emotions rooted in the deeper soul is morality.

Numerous moral choices could be made throughout a video game in the preferred embodiment, all centered around a unifying moral premise. Moral choices lead to augmented morality levels and immoral choices lead to decremented morality levels.

Such a feedback system, based on AI endowed with a moral sense, would result in epic storytelling. Thus dramatic action—the internal tensions and conflicts encompassed in making a moral decision, wherein virtue and vice battle internally—would be rendered in physical game play on the screen.

The physical action and dramatic action would be unified by the moral premise, thus deepening and emboldening the experience of both; thusly resulting in a higher artistic experience in the game.

Morality and deeper moral meaning

Prior to this present invention, players were given attributes such as health, strength, dexterity, intelligence, magic, and sanity.

But no video game offered the player an attribute such as morality. The present invention introduces a morality-level meter into the realm of video games. A plurality of moral choices, or plot points, may be presented throughout the video game; all of which would reflect a unified moral premise—the same kind of unified moral premise that is present in all higher art and literature.

Not only does this present invention introduce morality into video games in a novel manner, but it also introduces epic storytelling into the realm of video games, and it thus allows video games to achieve everlasting art. And the seed of the story is the exalted moral vision of the central character—a moral premise they harbor in their souls.

No matter how bad the physical or emotional pain gets, they yet adhere to the virtuous side of the moral premise. We love film, movies, and books because they present us with characters with moral dilemmas. Heroes, from Odysseus on down, from Braveheart on back, are those who can forgo short-term temptations for the eternal aspects of art and culture.

Heroes are those who can forgo fleeting wealth for eternal love and freedom, who can place and keep the higher ideals over the bottom line. Heroes are those who, when confronted with temptation and the immoral, yet walk the straight and narrow.

Such a video game, that allowed a player to become a hero on a spiritual level while also allowing them to engage in parallel physical actions in the game, would be novel, unique, and sought-after by many. Thus the dramatic depths of epic stories such as Braveheart and The Lord of The Rings were and are absent from video games.

For example, such video games have monitored the level of injury or health that a character has sustained during gameplay by, for instance, engaging in fights with enemy characters. Such video games have also been programmed to cause the game to end as a result of the player reaching a certain threshold for one or more of the monitored physical conditions, such as level of injury.

Such a player would be dead, and such a circumstance would be tantamount to the end of the game. And more particularly, the video game industry is avidly seeking ways to incorporate deeper storytelling within more emotionally-involved video games, thusly resulting in superior video games and novel forms of entertainment that will lead to brand new revenue streams.

The present invention was developed in order to meet this need for new gameplay features. The moral sense is what marks humans unique in this universe. Morality is where all character is rooted, and thus in order to render realistic characters on a spiritual level, the present invention will be needed by the video game industry.

Morality lies at the center and circumference of storytelling. Morality determines what makes us laugh and what makes us cry. It is via choices based on morality that story emerges in all classical literature. The moral dilemma is at the crux of dramatic action, wherein the destiny is decided by the moral, amoral, or immoral choices one makes.

And thus this present invention will revolutionize the video game industry by providing games with epic storytelling capabilities. Since the first stories were ever told, only one thing has ever consistently and successfully connected the storyteller with his or her audience: When considering the dramatic arts in his Poetics, Aristotle ranked story first and spectacle second to last.Feb 23,  · 1.

Aims and Methods of Moral Philosophy.

Moral | Definition of Moral by Merriam-Webster

The most basic aim of moral philosophy, and so also of the Groundwork, is, in Kant’s view, to “seek out” the foundational principle of a “metaphysics of morals,” which Kant understands as a system of a priori moral principles that apply the CI to human persons in all times and cultures.
