Description:
Don’t fancy a career in games user research? Just want to make games!? How a class (or two) on GUR helps you make better games (and be a better game designer & colleague). Drawing on examples big and small, from my (short) time at Electronic Arts Inc to working with games design students, this talk will highlight how user research can help you prevent disasters and solve problems you didn’t even know you had!
