Jane McGonigal, minha sex-symbol profissional, subiu ao palco do TED 2010 e deu uma palestra foda sobre o poder dos jogos.
Isso me lembra uma resposta do Clive Thompson a seguinte pergunta: “What would it be like if the US president grew up playing video games?”
I certainly would hope that this breeds — particularly if we get more inventive forms of games — a type of a cultural mindset that’s more interested in the complexity of the world and complex systems, because the one thing that you do when you play a video game is you sit down in a state of total ignorance. You don’t know what you’re supposed to do. You don’t know how this game works.
And the process of figuring out what to do is really what is fun about the game. In fact, people often stop playing the game once they’ve figured it out. And that’s a great inquisitive mindset that video games quite uniquely tap into.
