priming grant to coordinate between three universities: Princeton (host), Bath, and Georgia Tech on using serious games as an intervention to improve intuitive understanding of complex strategies of cooperation.
Even when people know that they would be better off working with other people, sometimes they don't. We looked at whether playing computer games gave players a better intuition about how they can cooperate.
We definitely can change how people cooperate. If they are working with people they can't identify, they cooperate more after using the game. However, if they are working one-on-one with someone, they'll often use their knowledge to be more competitive.
