Jouer le documentaire ?

Abstract : Some of webdocumentaries are also called documentary games by their makers. This article aims at analyzing the particularities of this kind of webdocumentaries and at wondering whether such an association between the game and the documentary is relevant. To this end, we first apply documentary game collection to a semio-pragmatic analysis, directing our attention to the recreational triggers found out in these productions. This analysis allows us to characterize different kinds of documentary games according to the web surfer's commitment, the structure of the programme and its purpose. Secondly, within the framework of an ethnomothological investigation, we confront a documentary game to an audience. The results highlight the difficulties perceiving the recreational aspect, and lead to wonder about the complexity of the fun in computer games as well in its subjective dimensions as in its social ones.
