Abstract

The academic study of computer and video games is a rapidly growing multinational and multidisciplinary field. The first UK international conference on computer games in 2001, a UWE event organised by Helen Kennedy and Jon Dovey at the Watershed Media Centre, marked a key point in the development of ‘game studies’ from a loose network of researchers into a field with its own research association: DiGRA – the Digital Games Research Association.
