Rezensionen
"Hjorth and Richardson have given us a groundbreaking look at the world of social, locative, and mobile gaming. They present a fascinating range of stories tracking these new forms of everyday play across the globe. A must read for anyone interested in the critical and social aspects of contemporary gaming and technology." - T.L. Taylor, Associate Professor, MIT, USA "Using a diverse pool of methods, locations, and cases, Hjorth and Richardson provide a robust picture of the interaction and codependent nature of social, mobile, and locative gaming in multiple contexts. Not only does this work utilize electronic means of social and locative games, but on-ground games such as Parkour and fantasy sports teams are discussed in comparison. In doing so, our experience in play is highlighted as a natural part of life and how our technology shifts the execution of our playful nature. For games, this representation of multiple cultural perspectives through a triangulation of research efforts adds a robust extension of prior work in the field of mobile gaming." - Robin Haislett, Weber State University, USA
