This issue of GAME Journal offers an overview and a series of case studies
on video games from the point of view of subcultural theory. There has
been little work in game studies from this perspective, which offers a
theoretical frame for the ever growing complexity of the audiences involved
with the medium of the video game. The study of subcultures on the other
hand has a long standing and complex tradition which culminates in what
has been recently defined as the “post-subcultural” theoretical scenario
