Ethics and Video Games Podcast

Jul 27, 2021

Trolls are the jerks of the gaming world.  They provoke, they insult, they disrupt, they get their gaming pleasure from messing with other players emotions and messing up their games.  It’s not hard to say that trolling it typically immoral, but are all trolls the same and is trolling ever justified? 

Joining us for our discussion is Dr. Christine “Chrissy” Cook, an expert researcher on trolls in video games. (@ChristinelcookL)
