Summary
"In Cheating, Mia Consalvo investigates how players choose to play games and what happens when they can't always play the way they'd like. She explores a broad range of player behavior, including cheating (alone and in groups); examines the varying ways that players and industry define cheating; describes how the game industry itself has helped systematize cheating; and studies online cheating in context in an online ethnography of Final Fantasy XI."--Jacket
