Week 8 Questions – Matt

Posted on | October 30, 2019 | No Comments

  1. There’s been a lot of discussion surrounding the danger of games incorporating Skinner Box techniques and design elements into things like mobile games and the like. What does the class think of this?
  2. Alongside my first question, several governments have been discussing the possibiliy of legislating that “loot boxes” are a form of gambling. Do we think this is an appropriate safety precaution or is it a step too far?
  3. Is it exploitative for games to constantly release extra contant at a premium rate, effectively creating what some scholars have called “a culture of haves and have-nots?” Or is it fair play?
  4. What is it about games that attracts so many people to want to work on them in a creative capacity versus other artistic mediums?
