Highly Commended: The Gravity of Video Games

Congratulations to Max from Mary Webb School and Science College who won the Highly Commended Award for the Aged 15 category. Max created a presentation to show how physics powers his passion for video games. Take a look at his entry below:

I chose this project because video games are developing faster than we could ever imagine, with even the military using video games and simulators to help train pilots. Gravity is an unsung hero in these games and simulations, as without the appropriate gravity, the gameplay can be completely different. With this in mind, I was curious to see how popular games stood up, from cartoony non-realistic games like Fornite and Minecraft, to realistic games, like Assassins’ Creed and Playstation’s most recent Spider-man games.
