Macquarie Academics on ABC’s Good Game

This week two Macquarie academics, Dr. Cynthia Townley and Dr. Mitch Parsell from the department of Philosophy, were featured on the ABC program ‘Good Game’.  The story was titled ‘A Moral Choice’ and explored the relationship between Ethics, Morality and the playing of video games.  It’s only a short story, as you’d expect in a half hour program, but some interesting points are conveyed.  I do have to say, however, that Father Bob was a little disapointing.  The video can be found here ->
