An education professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison education believes that MMOs like World of Warcraft (WoW) can help to produce better real-world citizens.
Professor Constance Steinkuehler outlined her views at a recent campus event.
With about 12 million people playing World of Warcraft alone, MMOGs have become a new “third place” like “Cheers,” where everyone knows your name and all that, Steinkuehler said.
Players “hang out and engage with one another in informal social ways,” she said. “Most people go for the game and stay for the people.”
