I think this meeting was very premature. Based on who was invited, the intent seemed to be what do we do about this problem not is there a problem . Without agreement on if there is a problem, attendees will have no mandate to do anything other than to say ...

@Jakub: I was waiting for ...

@Jakub: I was waiting for someone to make the real point here, and you did. Looking at if games induce one behavior or another is a red herring. What games are good for, and will get much better at over time, is accelerating learning. I went into great detail as ...

The mention of slot machine ...

The mention of slot machine players that cannot get up, that fall asleep, pass out, or pee in a cup to stay seated, this is the stim lock I describe in detail in my The Physiology of Gaming paper. If it goes on long enough the intent of proprietors is ...

Slay the Spire has been one of my two favorite games from 2017 though technically its a 2018 title since it 's still early access . I think they are using data driven methods smartly, using a global approach instead of just trying to focus on one metric like d3 ...

In game purchase is pretty wide territory. Yes I realize parents don 't understand jargon, so the solution there is to stop using jargon on them. Have the in game purchase tag to alert parents that their children will likely be propositioned in-game, and also apply a gambling mechanics tag ...

As I pined in my last article on Game Economics, you can 't learn it in a university, you have to actually go into games with player economies and study it first hand with that intent. Opportunities to do so have all but disappeared. As I have over 20,000 hours ...

I would imagine that was part of their argument to dismiss. Since it was not dismissed, there may be a lot more going on than we know about, including some evidence that Gameloft did have reason to know something was amiss.

Players were breaking the EVE economy within 3 months of launch using automated accounts. That was back in 2003. Why did they wait 15 years to start banning the practice Wow, now I feel old.
