The Computer Games Journal (TCGJ) is pleased to announce a CFP for the forthcoming special issue: iGAME (intergenerational: Gaming, Accessibility, Motivation, and Engagement).
The field of Games Studies has received a vast amount of interest and investigation over the last 50 years. Ranging from game addiction, gender, engagement/interaction, to health rehabilitation and cohorts (i.e. baby boomers). However, intergenerational gaming has received less attention, with the exception of work by Voida and Greenberg (2009;2010), De Schutter et al. (2017), and Wang et al. (2018).
Given the nature of play and the developments of game technologies over the last couple of decades, intergenerational gaming offers a myriad of experiences for both gamers and non-gamers, novice and expert gamers alike. Intergenerational gaming can facilitate several motivations in a milieu of domains from health and rehabilitation, to co-op and online gaming.
We invite submissions for this special issue of TCGJ, which a focus on cutting edge research and perspectives in relation to intergenerational gaming.
We welcome contributions from academics, industry professionals, students, and those with direct experience of intergenerational gaming. We will also consider papers concerning non-computing related intergenerational gaming, which reflect the intersectional and interlinked nature of intergenerational gaming.
