Late last week, the Seattle Times referenced our Center for Game Science in an article called “At UW, computer games studied as a serious cultural form”, noting the efforts brought about by the Comparative History of Ideas program by acknowledging, “Critiquing gaming from a cultural standpoint may lead to the development of more ethical and artful games.” Although our mention was not large at all, it is fascinating to note how the UW approaches gaming from a variety of angles to fit a broad scope of interests.
