Abstract

This chapter shows how “micro” practices of players’ engagement with the DS can be connected to larger “macro” contexts and communities (even nations) of play. The chapter is concerned with players’ bodily experience with the Nintendo DS interface. Themes addressed in this chapter include player discussions of pleasures, skill, and attention, but also of discomfort, failure, and misgivings.
