Sports themed videogames represent a major subset of the general videogame market. Despite being a consistently produced and played genre of videogames, almost no research has been conducted that looks at sports themed videogames or those who love to play them. Sports Videogameshopes to fill this gap by starting a scholarly dialogue about sports videogames and those who play them. Organized into three sections--the art of the game, mediating play, and players--Sports Videogamesoffers rich case studies, theorization of play activities, and carefully considered analyses of players, gameplay and industry concerns.
