Science fiction VS science fantasy
« on: December 28, 2009, 08:20:06 AM »
What do you prefer?

Science fantasy includes films like star wars where technology is shown but not explained. (accompanies by space orcs aka wookies etc).

Or science fiction, like the first matrix film where the scientific world presented in the film is very well explained, how it works and knowledge of the world becomes essential to the plot.

I think it can be a blurry line between which is which, but I know what you mean. My preference would lean towards science fiction.

Take what I consider to be the best science fiction story ever writing "Rendezvous with Rama" by Arthur C. Clarke. It doesn't really fit your definition of being a well explained science world and knowing how everything works, as the focus of the story is on an Alien ship we know nothing about.

I like both genres, but when it comes to video games, I prefer science fiction because there's enough fantasy science or otherwise saturating the market.
