Charles River Media, 2001. htm, 2001. ” AI Game Programming Wisdom. Charles River Media, 2002. com uch of the discussion about AI for games revolves around algorithms. Algorithms such as pathfinding, threat maps, flocking, neural networks, and so on are all important. Implementing, optimizing, and applying these algorithms is the primary work that we do. But what is the ultimate purpose of these algorithms? How do we ensure that these algorithms not only work correctly and efficiently but also engage and delight the player?

An approach that takes all of these themes seriously is called a situationist game AI. Contextual Animation The situationist theme with the most immediate relevance to the challenges of controlling characters on the latest generation of consoles is the demand that all bodily actions be fully situated in the context that they take place. This means going beyond the traditional approach to interactive character animation, which is only “contextual” to the extent of attempting to choose the right time at which to play the appropriate predefined or canned movement.
