Best of the Moving Pixels Podcast: What's the Point of Points?

Do games teach that success is something that is clearly quantifiable?

High scores, achievements, leveling up. The system runs on points, measures us in points, validates us in points.

This week, we go back to an episode from when the Moving Pixels podcast considered the value of points. What points matter to us? Why do we want them? Why do they matter so much to us?

This episode features discussion by Rick Dakan, G. Christopher Williams, and Nick Dinicola.

This podcast is also available via Soundcloud.
