On this week's special episode, Rem and Jules are joined by Anthony Bean a video games researcher who focuses on personality and gaming. Anthony is gathering dissertation research for his PhD on genres of video games and personality types. He's been a WoW player since release. We discuss about how narcissism presents itself in WoW and other online sources, along with many other topics related to gaming and personality. This is a great discussion about the current perceptions of gaming, mental health, and the people who play the games. You don't want to miss this discussion!
