    The three-headed monkey: a research blog on the video game culture.



    Dear fellow gamers,

    I am writing to you in order to promote my research blog on the video game culture: The three-headed monkey.
    My research seeks to study all that is related to video games and their culture from a sociological point of view. In my opinion, a research project focused on the way identities of video gamers are created through the study of the expert processes involved in the design of video games, along with the interaction of gamers with that cultural product and with other gamers including the social networks and social universes of meaning they create, can be very interesting.But well, it's my research, so probably I'm not being completely objective here!

    Focusing on the social interest of the project, I think the research could provide analytical and theoretical resources for game developers and gamers in order to improve their relationship and let them participate more actively in the products and identities they want to construct. This may be seen as a very abstract outcome, but it's difficult to foresee what the video gaming community might make of it. In any case, that's the reason I released a blog on the matter, trying to build an space of communication with the community beyond the academic world and its paraphernalia (I know, the last two paragraphs might be easily interpreted as being academic gibberish!).

    I will use this thread to announce new entries and this first post will contain links to all the entries posted up to date (I'll include them later and try to 'embellish' the thread). I won't create new threads on the matter unless I want to look for something in particular.

    I hope you enjoy my thoughts and, more importantly, give me a hand with the project.

    Best,
    Daniel.
