Gaming can make a better world – blimey.

As if I needed even more reason to play videogames, an intellectual woman goes and does a heap of research about it and provides the most convincing argument for why we should all play more games that I’ve ever heard. Below is a video of Jane McGonigal, a games designer and all-round awesome person who believes that “Reality is broken and we need to make it work more like a game.” It’s a 20 minute presentation, recorded in February 2010, and it’s one of the most thought-provoking things I’ve seen all year.

    Pretty epic speech. I understand where shes coming from, but shes going to need a more mainstream idea for a game to get the hardcore gamers interested in it.
    If she had a game that played like WoW and was able to teach us “real world” problem solving skills, then I can see her vision coming true. Im glad someone at least sees us gamers as assets rather than a boil on the ass of mankind.
    Cheers
