Ep. 8: Dr. Regina McMenomy’s Gamer Types


Hey, friends! This week we take a look at Dr. Regina McMenomy’s work on identity in RPGs (and other games, too). We share her proposed gamer types, talk about which categories we think we fall in, and discuss the potential impact of representation on people’s tendency toward each type. We also cover some news, including Sony’s new investment in Epic Games and the latest Nintendo Indie Showcase, and talk about what we’ve been playing.
