Ethics and Video Games Podcast


Sep 7, 2021

We’re used to thinking about games as fantasy worlds we escape to, while leaving our bodies behind.  In this traditional perspective of gaming, video games liberate us from our bodies and free us to be anyone and anything.  But, is that really the case? 

In this episode we speak with Dr. Rob Cover, who rejects this view and argues that it’s morally important to remember that we never leave our real bodies behind when playing video games
