Game Studies Download 5.0


Our panel of leading game studies researchers presents its 2010 top 10 list of academic findings. We've culled through hundreds of papers and journal articles to find the 10 most surprising and relevant insights for game designers and developers. Each finding is broken down into three key components:

1)What question did the researchers decide to investigate?
2) What are the most important insights that the researchers uncovered? And finally,
3) How can these findings be applied directly to the future design and development of innovative games?

Following last year's success, we will have the audience vote in real time for the most valuable studies, and present that ordered list at the conclusion of the session. Finally, we invite the audience to provide feedback on the topics they would like to see game studies scholars address in the future.
