Video games have become ingrained in modern society. They are the most popular form of entertainment globally, surpassing the yearly revenue of TV, movies and music in 2018.

With games taking their prominent place in society, it is only natural that the merits of gaming becomes a topic of discussion. The early film industry of the 1920s and 1930s underwent similar scrutiny after all.

Over the coming weeks, Game Academy will be diving into the following topics:

  • Social skills and communication
  • Gambling
  • Addiction
  • Are there good and bad games?
  • Conscious gaming
  • Wellbeing

We will be writing blog posts on some of these key themes and inviting guests to our live stream to discuss whether video games are ultimately good or bad.
