My knowledge of the Action and Adventure Genre.

The genres I feel I know well are Action and Adventure. I have not really enjoyed anything other than action and adventure as I feel like almost everything is considered an action and adventure story. The way my interest in learning about the action and adventure genre increased is by playing video games such as The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077, and Control. Each of these games has its own way of telling the story of the main character through the use of pathos, logos, ethos, and kairos. The Witcher uses ethos, pathos, and kairos to tell the story of Geralt in his search for his daughter who is on the run for the Wild Hunt. In Cyberpunk the use of pathos, ethos, and kairos is also very important. The story in Cyberpunk is about the main character V who has a cybernetic implant that threatens to overwrite V’s body with the personality of someone who is dead. And finally, the story of Control is about Jesse Faden’s personal search for answers about her brother. With the use of Logos, ethos, and pathos she grows into the role of the Director in a secret U.S. government agency tasked with containing and studying phenomena that violate the laws of reality. Overall, these games, each with very different stories contain the same action and adventure genre that keeps me playing these games and enjoying the story for what they are.  

Some genres I think that might give me good information for Unit 2 are information genres and primary information. The reason for this is that primary information involves having facts as the main source and can help me with supporting my ideas and my side of my research. Using articles also makes my research easier because articles also have their citations and that allows me to have multiple forms of information for myself. Overall, nothing that has opinions will be used for my research because they don’t prove my point. Instead, they work against me because I am not using facts.

    Articles are definitely an easier genre to pull from for a research paper, what other kinds of sources other than articles are you. considering? Do you plan on using different types of media or are you going to focus on written sources? Good connections with logos ethos kairos and pathos.

    Considering your topic, it makes sense to use research papers that involve electric cars. Maybe things like the net total emissions created by normal cars vs electric cars or maybe a study on the materials used to create electric cars and how obtaining them may be bad for the environment.
