Games Are Serious Fun – Believe!

March 25, 2011

Getting away from the kneee-jerk reaction that games are at best frivious and at worse damaging is important.  They are neither of those things.  They can be rubbish, but so can any media form.  Also like any media form they can be amazing, informative, educational, beautiful and creative.  Its not just me saying this – see this recommended read from Martha Henson and Danny Birchall at Wellcome:

Globally, gaming is big business, with a market worth an estimated $50 billion (£30 billion) in 2011 and a demographically diverse audience with an even gender split. But it’s not just about numbers: the dedication of gamers to the pleasure of play means time spent at the console can exceed that spent with a feature film or novel.
