Social Games Studies: What Do We Know, What Might We Learn?

Wissenschaftlicher Workshop im Rahmen der GCO 2010 am Freitag, 9. Juli 2010, 14:00-18:30 Uhr

In tune with the relative newness of the hybrid medium that is social games, this workshop pursued two goals: One, to take stock of the academic and industry research on social games that has been done or is currently being conducted. Secondly, to identify what (if anything) makes social games different to video games on the one hand and social networks on the other: Which theoretical approaches and methodologies promise to capture these characteristics, which new data sources, methodologies and research questions do social games afford?
