A friend of mine is planning to create an educational video dealing with Game theory.
His teaching strategy is to introduce the subject via video games.
For example, he told me that the game "Fortnite" has, as drawback, to lead to some sort of " Nash Equilibrium" (in which gamers are induced to protect themselves around walls, and to adopt a " wait and see" attitude, any initiative having costs greater than possible gains).
I do not want to claim that my friend's claim is correct ( for I have absolutely no understanding , either of game theory or of video games).
My question is simply :
(1) could video games provide a good illustration of game theoretical concepts
(2) are there references on this possible link between the two fields?
