Call me a cardboard hugger if you want, but I think games have the potential to make the world a better place.
The math is pretty simple, people have fun playing games; people should play more games. People can learn from from games, whether it be social skills or general education. Learning in a fun way…..sign me up!
As a designer of games, I like to think that I have the opportunity to make a game that will leave the world a better place than I found it. If you think about it, the bar is really low. If one of our games can help one person learn one thing, help one person to be a better friend or bring together family for one more family gathering, our games can leave the world a better place.
The power of games is immense if people are willing to look at the full potential of games. I hope that I can spread the idea that games are powerful and can do a lot of good things, one of them being the power to make the world a better place.
