“Reality is broken. Game designers can fix it.” According to Jane McGonigal, anyway.

An article in the New Scientist on games adressing real-world problem solving. Interesting. I have read quite a bit of Ms McG’s writing, and she’s one to keep an eye on, for sure. Games may be a way to stimulate lateral thinking about problems, as their non-reality liberates thought from the full weight of consequences.
