Open Questions for Empathy and Games

In this paper, we pose questions about the intersection of video games with empathy. To do this, we provide a thematic overview of research related to empathy and games, including investigations on game elements that may be connected to empathy, such as communication, perspective taking, and relationship building. We identify current gaps in the research related to using games for empathy and make recommendations on next steps for this burgeoning field.
