Don’t Hate the Player, Hate the Game? Frustration & Gaming
“I swear I pushed the jump button at the right time! #&$%#@!!!” – find yourself feeling stuck? Join a panel of psychologists and game designers as they discuss the role of frustration in game play. They’ll discuss how you can transform your irritation into empowerment, unlocking your ability to face that inevitable OP challenge through personal growth.
