Life’s a game


Many people say that life is a game. But could video games help us solve our real world issues? That’s an interesting question.

When you think of the time people dedicate to video games, spending hours solving puzzles and challenges, you can wonder if this same energy could not be used to bring new and innovative solutions to our society.

That’s exactly the point developed by Jane McGonigal in this great speech. Would it be possible to create an online video game, where players’ creativity would be used for overcoming issues we don’t always have the courage to face? And could it be possible to apply the ideas we invented in the game to our daily life?

Jane begins to answer those questions, and many more, in this video. Enjoy!
