Papers, Please opened the player’s eyes to the realities of being a border patrol officer, Papo & Yo put players in the shoes of an abused child, and Cart Life put a burden on players to just survive everyday life. These games that try to impart some sort of knowledge of another person’s situation are known as Empathy Games, and they may be the future of how we get to know each other. Join Jamin on this week’s episode of Game/Show as he discusses how games can generate empathy, and what the future of empathy games look like. Hint: Virtual Reality!
