This week, Rhonda and I take on the task of explaining the basics of Game Culture to the uninitiated.
We talk basic gaming terms and concepts that keep us returning to gaming game after game. Use this episode to explain to your non-gamer friends and family what and how and why you game. Let us know if we missed your favorite reason or motivation for gaming and we’ll do a follow-up show with your feedback!
Until next time, game on!
Regina and Rhonda
Regina is a gamer, writer, teacher, and podcaster living in the Pacific Northwest. She completed her Ph.D. in 2011 from Washington State University in Vancouver and continues to teach there part time. Regina’s research interests focus on women and technology, and her dissertation discusses female gamers and identity in digital role playing games. A lifelong geek and technology enthusiast, Regina recently started a Girls Who Code club in support of their mission to close the gender gap in technology.
To continue the conversations about gender and gaming that Regina started during her research, she started a podcast called Game on Girl. Called the “NPR of game podcasts” by Chris Brown of The Married Gamers, the podcast features women involved in the game industry, and tackles some of the complicated issues in the gaming community. Season 2 began in the spring of 2018 and will premiere new episodes monthly.
