My research discusses the continuing cultural relevance of the Gothic by investigating the complex employment of Gothic features in digital game stories and how players respond to Gothic features. More specifically, I study how Gothic monstrosities contribute to constructing Dystopian game worlds, how Gothic ideologies manifest in the action role-playing game "Fallout 3", and what kinds of commentary with moral evaluations do Gothic features produce in Let's Play gaming videos. My research has implications for Gothic studies, game studies and game design.
