One of the most recent additions to UQÀM’s Master’s Degree program in Communication Studies, the video games and gamification concentration studies the emergence and development of video games from a communicational, social, cultural, and cognitive point of view.
We also cover subjects such as the effects and design of gamification, how users learn video games, how players use them, the dynamics of online video game communities and the phenomenon of video game immersion.
My current research interests are centered on how players interpret, challenge and modify the rules of tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons.
