Games in Everyday Life

Postby GonFreeces31 » Tue Apr 06, 2010 5:37 pm

Some of you may find this interesting. Here is a TED talk about games becoming a part of everyday life:

http://www.ted.com/talks/jesse_schell_w ... _life.html

Here's the abstract: Games are invading the real world -- and the runaway popularity of Farmville and Guitar Hero is just the beginning, says Jesse Schell. At the DICE Summit, he makes a startling prediction: a future where 1-ups and experience points break "out of the box" and into every part of our daily lives.

I don't play phantasy phootball. I win. :D

Games-like tasks are more interesting than the ordinary ones. Fact.

EDIT:
I hate that guy and 99% of what he says. Can we make it into a game for me to shoot him?

Alteil is pretty much well balanced. Sometimes you loose and sometimes the enemy wins.

REAL MEN DONT PLAY. THEY WIN. ;zagar

I'm sure someone here could make that flash game. I thought it was cool the one part where he was saying some teachers hand out experience points so you can level up your grade.

I remember back in the day when someone made one using Barney. Good times.

That guy was saying everyone plays, well i don't, so i win over his argument. But sure you can reach same conclusion from that as well. :P

Oh yeah I remember watching that. It's such a good speech and very well written. I even wrote an essay on the same exact topic. Kind of a scary future is it not?

Doubt they do that. It's easier for them to keep things set how they want with the money system and all the downsides that come along ... ^^

Besides that game system is damn complicated.
