Motivate. Play. is a website devoted to exploring issues at the intersection of social science and games.

At Motivate. Play. we seek to form a bridge between the gaming and scientific communities, offering analysis and commentary on games from a social sciences perspective. We bring experience in fields like cognitive science, telecommunications, and psychology to the table in an effort to examine games with the scientific rigor they deserve. But we haven't forgotten our roots, either. Long before any of us were researchers, we were gamers, and we hope that Motivate. Play. can be a resource equally accessible to academics, hardcore gamers, and everyone in between.
