Video games are more popular than ever, and gaming is an increasingly common hobby. However, gaming raises a number of complex ethical issues. Perhaps the most familiar is the question of whether violent video games are morally appropriate or not. But beyond questions about the morality of gaming and what is appropriate content, we might wonder what the overall value of gaming is. Gamers are quite passionate about their hobby, and with concerns about gaming-disorder on the rise, it is reasonable to ask what redeeming value video games have. What role, if any, can video games have in the good life?

The goal of this conference is to provide a small forum for philosophers and gamers interested in the philosophy of gaming to share their work and enjoy the sunny winter weather of southeast Florida. The theme of this year's conference is virtual reality and gaming.
