Description:
Social network analysis (SNA) is a tool to analyze multi-user communities and builds on graph-theory. In this talk I demonstrate the potential of SNA for game designers and game analysists to get a deeper understanding of game structures and communities. In the first part of my talk will talk about analysis we did on Bungie's Destiny, where we correleated the players' performance with their social behaviour in the game. In the second part of the talk I will talk about the social structure within the developer community and conclude with explaining the "John Romero" number.
