Today I’ve posted the frontmatter and introduction of my PhD thesis on role-playing videogames, which now has “its own page here.”:http:/benhourigan.com/phd-thesis
I’m really hoping to get some feedback on this, especially from gamers. Some reasons why you should read the thesis as I serialise it, so you can give me comments:
* It’s the only book-length work in English on (videogame) RPGs, so if you’ve ever wanted to read one, this is your only option.
* It features me being pugnacious.
* Reading it won’t make your mind contort painfully in an effort to decipher incomprehensible nonsense.
So get to it! Further chapters will appear as I finish editing them. Post comments for discussion on the relevant blog entry, or “email”:mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org them to me directly.
