Terra Nova reports that 15 papers on virtual worlds are online for free and easy consumption. The papers were written by students of the “Games for the Web: Ethnography of Massively Multiplayer On-line Games.” or “Games for the Web” course at Trinity University. There is a great collection of areas of investigation. I’ve had a quick read of some and they look really interesting. They cover MMOs as therapy, as pedagogy, as sexual gratification, as bonding and so on. I have alot to say about these topics but I have to get back to finishing a paper I’m writing. Doh! Anyway, enjoy the papers.
