Game Studies vs Game Theory

Apparently there is such a thing as Game Studies.

Not to be confused with game theory of course.

Reminds me a little of the difference between software engineering and computer science. One is based in the practical, the other the theoretical.

One is more of an art, one more of a science.

Arguably, one is more fun, the other more interesting.

Regardless, Ludologist sounds like a mighty fine job title.
