We are honored to present the special issue (3-2015) of Cyberpsychology: Journal of Psychosocial Research on Cyberspace - Experience and Benefits of Game Playing. This special issue reflects the efforts of a range of European, American and Australian researchers who place the experience of playing video games at the core of their reflective work. Studies on video gaming can be differentiated on the basis of the extent to which the research positions games at the heart of their work, in addition to the extent to which research gives attention to the capacities and thinking of the game player to be able to offer perspectives on player experience. This approach to research is evident in all articles included in this special issue.
