The Study of Video Games

The New York Times has a technology article about what happens when academics discover video games.

Ludology, the theory of video games, is the name of a new academic field that seeks to explore concepts behind video games. I glanced at Ludology.org and Ludonauts, and noticed some emerging terminology in the field such as agonistic integrity and epistemic conditions. Hmm... why do I have the feeling that the people who study video games are not the people who play them.
