Bundle o’ Joy: 15 Virtual Worlds Papers

On June 28, 2006 by Christy

Terra Nova reports that 15 papers on virtual worlds are online for free and easy consumption. The papers were written by students of the “Games for the Web: Ethnography of Massively Multiplayer On-line Games.” or “Games for the Web” course at Trinity University. There is a great collection of areas of investigation. I’ve had a quick read of some and they look really interesting. They cover MMOs as therapy, as pedagogy, as sexual gratification, as bonding and so on. I have alot to say about these topics but I have to get back to finishing a paper I’m writing. Doh! Anyway, enjoy the papers.
