    More Than just a Game remains absolutely unique as the academic venue where emergent legal and regulatory issues relating to video games come to be defined, examined, and understood. It is therefore a forum that serves the interests of all who are associated with the interactive entertainment industry including game creators, fans, regulators, and government.
