It’s (almost) the first week of the month, which means that it’s time for another VGHVI Symposium! I’ve got a big ambition for this one–I want to open some avenues of discussion about the connection between fun, play, and game on the one hand, and learning on the other. I think I’ve hinted to some VGHVIers that despite my admiration for Raph Koster, I find his A Theory of Fun seriously lacking in this regard, and we can probably use my disagreement as a jumping-off point. David’s also suggested that we talk about the nature of feedback in games, which I think fits beautifully with the topic.
We’re going to do this as a Google+ Hangout, since it worked well last time.
We’ll meet Thursday at 9:30 EDT / 6:30 PDT. Here’s my Google+ Profile, if you’re not already in my circles.
