Book chapter on Guitar Hero

While there are plenty of game-related top lists available on the interwebs, academics discussing the “greatest” games are few and far between. The newly released “100 Greatest Video Game Franchises” edited by Robert Mejia, Jaime Banks and Aubrie Adams pulls of an almost impossible feat. Getting together 100 game researchers and having them write something relevant about video games. My contribution discusses Guitar Hero and the rise and fall (and rise again?) of the franchise. It’s a short piece, but it captures my feelings and (research) perspective well. Here’s the full citation:

– Nieborg, David B. 2017. Guitar Hero. In 100 Greatest Video Game Franchises, edited by Robert Mejia, Jaime Banks & Aubrie Adams, 75-77. Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield.

Google Books gives a nice preview and the book is available on Amazon orrrrr in a bookstore near you!
