Study on Ethics and Morality in Role-Playing Games

Posted by Carolyn

This summer Mia Consalvo and I are conducting a study investigating players’ perceptions of ethics and morality in their videogame play. Through semi-structured interviews we’ll explore how players negotiate issues of representation, ethical dilemmas, and morality systems in digital role-playing games.

In particular we’re looking for people who have played some or all of the following videogame series:

Dragon Age
Mass Effect
Baldur’s Gate
The Elder Scrolls

If you would like to volunteer for an interview or find out more please contact Carolyn Jong at ckjong (AT)

Please note: Participants must be 18 years of age or above.
