Short post today – I just wanted to announce that as of last month, I’ve officially become an editor at First Person Scholar, an online games studies periodical funded by the Games Institute, a part of the SSHRC IMMERSe grant awarded to the University of Waterloo.
I’m really excited to be part of this amazing project run by a group of PhD candidates in games studies, and I highly encourage you to check it out. We publish every Wednesday in the form of critical essays, commentaries, book reviews, and interviews with known games scholars, developers, and key players in the world of games journalism. Unlike most academic journals, a really important part of FPS’ vision is to be more accessible to the mainstream public in terms of theory and content about games. If you have any interest in reading timely critical pieces on games (indie and AAA), reflections on things going on in the industry, or want to peruse our selection of book reviews on games theory, visit our website!
