By taking Jean Epstein’s theoretical remarks on the cinema and Norbert Elias’s on the symbolic emancipation concept as a starting point, the author proposes an analysis of the changes linked to the relationship between media and new forms of symbolic emancipation, focusing on the role which videogames have played in the last twenty years’ period in forming the so told simulation culture in the western countries. The essay ends with some considerations about transformations in the experiential modalities that are involving the new generations and about the widespread debate on the passage from homo legens to homo communicans (also called homo game).
