Research interests relevant to game philosophy

Having a background in virtue ethics, my primary interest in computer games concerns how play affects the character of the player. The interface with deontological approaches to player actions is also important, albeit as as a source for opposing views to those I hold myself. In several publications I have attempted to elucidate the normative aspects of player behaviour in traditional psychological studies on game-playing.
