What People are Saying
“At least two generations of people have grown up with games and … it is part of their DNA to want to express themselves in that form. The bandwidth [of videogame emotion] is usually tension and competition—a sense of aggression. That’s changing.”
Tracy Fullerton, professor at the University of Southern California
