In this piece Wagner puts forth the argument how "video games are more like religion than other modes of digital interaction like social media, web sites, or even emerging free-play digital worlds". She goes on to consider how gaming offers almost religious vision by imposing order on a chaotic environment driven by information overload. More details of her article can be found here:
