Sharing double the streams this week

Hey everyone, Adam here, posting a collection of my weekly twitch streams where I focus on non-violent games, which I’m defining as “rewarding the player for intellectual and/or emotional engagement, rather than providing dopamine for combat and other violent accomplishments”–though my computer was a mess last week, so I didn’t have the time for my usual blog post. So this week, I’ll have a link for both this week *and* last week’s Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday streams 🙂

The goal is to show the breadth of what the medium of video games can offer, and subsequently to dispel the myth that video games exist purely as a way to experience some kind of macho power fantasy the way a series like Call of Duty does. Video games are a medium, and one that arguably could provide even more varied experiences than film or books–two mediums that would never be assumed to only provide a single, harmful experience. So join my as I take you through games that provide wonderful alternatives to that type of game, from being empathy engines, to being a teacher of frustration tolerance, to elevating problem-solving skills– and more!
