Week 7: web links

Web links for the Game Studies lesson:—

Over 100 hand-picked quality websites for academic studies of videogames, at Intute. I wrote 98% of these Intute entries.

I’ve made sure my JURN search-engine covers all the useful sources of free academic studies on videogames (including the Digital Games Research Association conference proceedings, but not PhD theses in academic repositories).

Especially useful ‘open access’ (in other words, free) academic journals are: Game Studies; the International Journal of Role-Playing; the Narrative Design Exploratorium; Loading…; and the Journal of Virtual Worlds Research. The open ejournal Transformative Works and Cultures also has a lot of articles on fan-made works in the area of games.

My overlay ejournal Journal of the Imaginary and Fantastic has a special issue on machinima (all linked articles are free and open access).
