OASIS Lunch Time Talk: Assemblage agency and the games that play us
Do we play games or do they play us? I examine the construction of agency in the play of multiplayer video games by utilizing autoethnographic approach. I pay attention to how different elements contribute to the sense of agency and argue that Jane Bennet's (2009) concept "assemblage agency" can offer a fruitful way to examine player agency.
