Episode 7: Our Take on Games: from Nostalgia to Toxicity
This the seventh episode of our podcast titled ‘Digital Discussions’, in which we discuss topics about the digital, humanities, and digital humanities. As the host of this episode, Emma presents some questions and topics partaining to our experience with games, game nostalgia, game streaming, gamer stereotypes, and income models of modern games. We discuss terminology such as ‘freemium’, ‘subscribification’ and ‘hardcore gaming’ in our longest episode yet. In these episodes, we’re going to rotate the role of host that introduces a topic and a discussion around it with the help of an academic article, news article, or something else relevant. We hope you enjoy listening!
