Our department got the opportunity to go to Games for Change this year in NYC. It was really fantastic to get over there, listen to some very interesting topics, watch a variety of presentations (no one used Prezi) and of course, play some games. I think the biggest take away however was some of the conversations I had in the lobby. I met a lot of game makers, transmedia folks and a few really interesting characters. One question that kept coming up was: “If games are to truly make social justice headway than how do we get them in the hands of the least advantaged?” It does seem a touch ingenuous to try and “bring awareness” to a subject when only people with access can participate in the process. That being said there were some truly mindbending projects out there. My favorite The Curfew was one of the big ones at the Conference.
