Mitchell Harrop is an information systems and software specialist. His PhD thesis concerned the negotiation of rules and experiences by players in digital multiplayer games. The thesis found that individuals fleetingly frame their game playing in a multitude of ways, e.g. serious competitions, casual events, as fabrications and learning experiences. Changes to game mechanics act as a muse to their experiences. Drawing from three studies the thesis extends the work on Frame Analysis to the domain of digital game studies, while also utilising the work on player motivations and player types.
