Ethics and Video Games Podcast

Mar 20, 2021

Games are traditionally thought of as acting like magic circles.  When we enter the game, we enter the magic circle and leave the real world behind.  In our first podcast we explore how the magic circle idea can help us think about fairness and cheating in video games, how this way of thinking was challenged by a brilliant scheme from the chaotic world of Eve Online in 2005, and how this relates to using money to get an advantage against other players.
