How true…  how true.  I wasn’t a big fan of McGonigal’s first talk.  But this one is cool.  The whole idea of gaming is…  although it feels like a lot of people misunderstand gaming.

If I had to draft down my ideas on a makeshift blog post, gaming is about creating a safe environment to invest some energy to exercise some skill to get from point A to point B.  And we are built in such a way that everything we do is, in effect, a game.  We just use the term game for things that do not bring immediate value.

Game is a process that has a certain expected structure and is associated with some positive emotions…  Definitely agree that we need to play more games.
