If I didn t know anything about psychology I think I would have loved this book As it is I felt like I was reading a lot of information I had read before on Madigan s blog in psychology textbooks and other psychology books I ve read It felt a little like Madigan simply padded out some of his really awesome blog posts on psychology and gaming I was confused about who the audience was Madigan s tone was very casual and it felt like he was addressing a skeptical or uneducated audience I found myself thinking that Klee and Kandinsky are significantly different actually and yes I m familiar with both of them and I don t need to google them and instead of telling me to google them I wish you d gotten permission to just print an example I felt the lack of screenshots and pictures uite a bit and for such an expensive book I expected a little on that front although I m happy to support writing about psychology and videogamesOkay now that I ve gotten all that whining out of the way I can talk about what I liked I really enjoyed the first part about how people can arbitrarily identify with a concept or brand and then get all fan ish about it Here s one uote that mentioned research I d never heard of until now about how to avoid taking it personally when someone criticizes a brandgameidentity we love A 2011 study published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology showed that even just having subjects do some self affirmation by writing a few sentences about their best ualities let them avoid this habit of reacting badly to criticism of something they liked I think 51 It might have some practical applicationI also liked learning about game nostalgia I read that the peak time for forming strong preferences was at age 20 things one is likely to still enjoy as an adult andor get nostalgic about it s not clear pg 59 I also liked reading about the study on locked choices Participants made prints of two photos they liked and chose one to take home with them One group had to decide right away and the other had five days to change their minds Those who were locked into a choice liked the print they chose better than the ones who had five days to change their minds So I think being locked in to a choice in a game could make players feel attached to their decisions and the outcome it makes but missing other paths is painful This was on page 65I think Madigan s editor should have told him to make the tone formal I actually felt a bit alienated by an author who made so many incorrect assumptions about me and the way he threw in unexpected untrue things was attention getting but weird The material was interesting enough without all of that at least to me I hope Madigan continues to write about psychology and games Education and the USA it's not all bad This book will show that rather than being a waste of time video games can help us develop skills make friends succeed at work form good habits and be happy Taking the time to learn what's happening Monster Airplanes in our heads as we play and shop allows.
