Hey everyone, if you’re going to be attending PAX West 2019 in Seattle this year, I’m going to be there and I’ll be presenting on a very cool panel. The title is “ The Marvel of Marvel Gaming: What Keeps Us Playing?” and it will be Saturday, August 31st at 3:30 pm in the Sasquatch Theater.
There have been over 123 Marvel video games, spanning across 13 different consoles for 37 years! They have varied in gameplay, characters and publishers (over 45!) and have ranged between abysmal (Fantastic Four, 2007) to legendary ratings (Spiderman, 2018). So what accounts for such a dynamic and dominant franchise? Why do we keep playing?? Join a few renown gaming psychologists and professionals as they discuss the psychology behind the allure of Marvel gaming, including how we identify with an expanding universe of characters, live through them to better understand ourselves, and find our own inner-superhero through their stories, gameplay and achievements!
I’ll have a few autographed copies of my book to sell and will be happy to sign yours if you already have a copy. See you there!
