“And Also the Ice Age Comes and Goes”

April 25 @ 12:30 pm 1:30 pm

The Discussion of Climate Change and Values in Gaming Discussion Forums

Professor Kerstin Radde-Antweiler explores climate change in relation to video games and gaming practices, analyzing discussions on environmental games and their narratives.

Despite the prominence of climate change themes in games, her research reveals a lack of discussion about their content and connections to real-world events on gaming forums compared to other media platforms. However, reactions on gaming forums indicate skepticism and rejection of moralizing clilmate change narratives, reflecting broader societal distrust of governmental institutions and politicians, alongside other societal issues like the COVID-19 pandemic.
