Bogost on the Future of Gaming

External News Details

Ian Bogost, Associate Professor in the School of Literature, Communication, and Culture, and Director of Graduate Studies in Digital Media, took part in the Inventing the Future of Games Symposium hosted by UC-Santa Cruz's Center for Games and Playable Media. Bogost spoke of a future "in which games are as ubiquitous and ordinary as photographs, and used for as many purposes." Games as advertising is not a new thing by any means (see Burger King’s Sneak King), but Bogost brought up an even more banal possible usage: airline safety.  Source: Santa Cruz News, June 29, 2011
