Book Description:

There are a lot of misconceptions about video games among parents and families, but much of research on gameplay is out of context and ignores the home. Siyahhan and Gee's book fills in this gap, focusing on gameplay within the family, hearth, and home. In so doing, it promises to correct many misperceptions of the medium by way of serious attention paid to how families really play. Often together, sometimes at odds, across generations, and always in a bidirectional influence between media and context. It's brilliant work.
