Ludology featured in Wired’s JargonWatch

January 31st, 2007

Wired’s monthly Jargon Watch feature has listed ludology as new bit jargon alongside fratire, chassis (in a non-automotive sense) and social jet lag. According to Jonathon Keats of Wired, ludology (from the latin word ludus, meaning “games”) is the academic study of videogames. Intellectual sites such as Jesper Juul’s The Ludologist and Gonzalo Frasca’s consistently provide us with thought-provoking material on our favorite entertainment medium.
