After a recent discussion about centers of game research around the world and the responses it generated on the DiGRA mailing list, I have created a Google Map that shows the institutions doing game research around the world. Interestingly, most of them are in the United States and Europe. Of course the results may be biased, since only institutions on the DiGRA mailing list were giving input. However, if you feel that you do higher education (University level) game research and should be on this map, please feel free to add yourself.
