February 11, 2021 A brief introduction to computer games beyond prejudice

In today’s episode I’ve discussed the impact of computer games in today’s society with my uncle and game expert Marc Bodmer, who has being working the field of interactive media for more than 25 years. The insights show what kind of implications computer games can have for us, particularly the aspect of control and self-efficacy they provide. Computer games, an area where young people during the pandemic can interact and meet other adolescents, be creative, and regain a sense of competence and mastery.

With this introduction we kick-off a series of episodes focusing on video games and the interdependence of interactive entertainment and players.
