Are games a dangerous and anti-social addiction? Might gaming be able to save the world? How is gaming culture changing the kinds of stories that we tell and how we engage with them?

Join playwright and gamer Rory Mullarkey (Cannibals) and Iain Simons (Director of the GameCity Festival and co-founder of the National Videogame Archive) to explore how gaming has developed from Pong to Destiny and to discuss where gaming might take us in the future.

Chaired by the Royal Court's Literary Manager, Christopher Campbell.
