Close Playing III: Video Games and the User Experience

Video games often get a bad rap: derided as mindless entertainment, seen lacking the gravitas of other forms of cultural expression (e.g. artwork, music, literature, etc.), and enmeshed in debates on issues such as violence. Sponsored by the Honors Humanities program, the Close Playing series invites us to treat video games seriously as cultural texts. In this panel, the third of a three part series, Chris Apple (University of Maryland Gamer Symphony Orchestra), Dawn Moore (WoW Insider), and Joshua Lynsen (Street Pass Network) discuss networks that transform, repurpose, or re-inscribe the players experience of video games with additional meaning and context. Roundtable discussion followed by audience Q&A. Free and open to the public. {Will appear in FYI on Nov 12, 2012
