It is a balancing act! Game User Research (GUR) can greatly enhance a player's experience and piss off game designers at the same time. In this talk, you will learn about the history of Game User Research, how research helps games become more fun, an analtyical breakdown of why games are fun, and the latest game research methods available. You will also learn how game user researchers and game developers/designers can collaborate more effectively. A rollicking good time for everyone!
