LOST IN A GOOD GAME: WHY WE PLAY VIDEO GAMES AND WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR US

Pete Etchells



 

Media coverage of video games - and, increasingly 'screen time' - is overwhelmingly negative and alarmist. Apparently, they are the unequivocal source of many societal ills. But what does science actually have to say about the effects that playing them can have on us?


In Lost in a Good Game, psychologist Pete Echells takes us on a journey through that scientific data and research, as well as his own past experiences with video games, which helped him cope in the aftermath of a tragedy.


His story reveals that, really, our worries are unfounded - and that in playing, studying and living through them we can understand what it means to be human.
