  5. 5. Playing for Togetherness - Designing for Interaction Rituals through Gaming

    Author : Karl Bergström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : game research; interaction design; interaction ritual; togetherness; gamer groups;

    Abstract : Can design facilitate togetherness through games? Seeing the outcomes of a successful interaction ritual – positive emotional energy and a sense of group solidarity – as the main components of the togetherness of games, this thesis seeks to shed light on how design can improve the use of games as vehicles of interaction. The thesis combines six different articles on games, gaming and gamers; the articles illuminate the different ingredients of the interaction ritual afforded by playing games and covers digital-, board- and tabletop role-playing games.
