Bogost on Political Games

External News Details

"There's a continuity within the crassness of elections that gamification plugs into very well," says Ian Bogost, Professor in the School of Literature, Communication, and Culture and Director of the Graduate Program in Digital Media, in an article about the influence of online gaming on U.S. political elections. Bogost continues, "There's a cynicism and instrumentalism to the process that's meant to produce results for its participants, rather than for the citizens."
