While browsing around Gamasutra, I came up on a master’s thesis that had been originally posted at Game Career Guide. I followed that back to its source and found a smorgasbord of fascinating video game theses on a variety of topics, such as:
- A Legal Analysis of Cheating in Online Multiplayer Games (master’s)
- Story Games and the OPIATE System (doctoral)
- The Potential of America’s Army as Civilian Public Sphere (master’s)
- Watching Games and Playing Movies: The Influence on Cinema on Computer Games (master’s)
There are a number of technically-oriented theses too, as you would expect. I’m excited to see so many theses collected together that view gaming from an analytical perspective rather than a developmental perspective, however, just because the latter is so much easier to find.
