All The World's A Game

By Sarah Motherwell

Do you consider yourself a gamer?

Have you ever played Angry Birds on your phone? How about a game of poker with friends or the board game Monopoly with your family? Do these things make you a gamer or is it a title for people who play computer or console games?

Earlier this year, the video gaming industry surpassed music and films to become the largest entertainment industry in the word and continues to grow rapidly.

Youth Reporter Sarah Motherwell spoke with Associate Professor of Communication and Media Studies at the University of Western Australia, Stewart Woods who specialises in game studies and is a passionate hobby gamer, about this rapidly growing industry and what makes a gamer.
