German game studies?

I have this impression that German game studies is mainly hard-data sociology. This may be an error of mine, from a traumatic experience at a conference in New York a couple of years ago, but when I look for computer game studies in Germany I don't find it. This is probably due to my bad German skills, it's hard to find the right keyword in a language I write badly. So please, dear knowledgeable and skilled readers: what do you know about German game studies? Can you please tell me?

nothing about German Game studies.. in fact the only german Sociologist that I know quite well is Niklas Luhmann that could be considered some kind of hard sociologist (even without data!).
The comment was just to say that I tagged you here!

Thank you George. There is a reference to computer games (Datenspiele) in that article, although mostly it's about group processes and group cooperation. Interesting in that regard though!
