PAX East 2011 Triple Threat: The Game Makes the Community (part 1/2)

Rym and Scott of GeekNights presented three mini-panels at PAX East 2011 within "The Triple Threat: Short Subjects in Gaming." These were "MMOs are Anything But," "The Game Makes the Community," and "Dudebro: How to Win at the Internet."

This is the second of these mini panels from the Wyvern Theatre. They argue that the communities around particular games are not independent of their foci, but rather are actually direct extensions of the underlying mechanics therein. Games literally create their own communities, promoting particular behaviors as a direct result of their design.

This is part one of two for this segment of the lecture.
