The Nostalgia of Video Games

On this episode of Newhouse Impact Kevin Kloss is joined by Nick Bowman. Nick teaches courses on the user experience of immersive and interactive media at the Newhouse School at Syracuse University. Prior to joining the Newhouse School, Bowman was a tenured associate professor at two other research institutions: Texas Tech University from 2019-22 and West Virginia University form 2011-19. At both institutions, he was chiefly responsible for developing coursework focused on media psychology and the uses and effects of emerging media, such as social media, video games and extended reality technologies.

Kevin and Nick discuss the nostalgia of video games, what initiates these feelings within us, and how the way our culture views the impact of video games is changing.

Newhouse Impact, is a collaboration between the S.I Newhouse School of Public Communications and WAER. Find more about the department on their website.
