More Than a Pastime: A Promise to Future Generations

What’s is the magic of games? What makes the medium so powerful that people spend hundreds or thousands of hour pouring over these virtual experiences? Can we harness that to make better more meaningful games? To better explore the human experience? To make a better world for the future? Join James Portnow from Extra Credits as he explores these questions on February 19, 2018.
