Games invading your life

8 Mar

Okay, I know I just posted yesterday, and I generally try to space these out, but I just saw this video and had to share. It’s Jesse Schell, a professor at Carnegie Melon talking about how gaming has begun to creep into reality in some really incredible and psychological ways. As a game designer, he wraps the presentation in the question, “imagine how great this will be when it’s designed!” Watch it through until the end, the second half is the best part.

Embeding SWF in WordPress is a pain, so I’m sorry, but I’m going to need to just link it instead.

He begins with some small, clever possibilities, and increasingly explores more and more incredible implications of how game-thinking can change social, educational and economical behavior. It’s really incredible to think about, albeit a little spooky.

    An eye-opener, to be sure. I actually wrote a post about Jesse Schell’s speech just over a year ago on my site! See what you think: http://astringentgaming.com/jesse-schell-dice-2010/

    Tell me what you think! Looking forward to seeing more of your posts; maybe you’ll enjoy more of ours too!
