TSpace Respository 2009-
In a series of four studies I explore several possible explanations for why prejudice is more common in video games than in other contexts and what effect prejudice in this environment has on gamers. Using a daily diary study I found that female gamers experience more bigoted comments than male gamers and are more strongly affected than are male gamers. These four studies provide an introduction to the online gaming environment and lay a foundation for future work to reduce prejudice in online gaming.
