Jane McGonigal: Games are a powerful platform for change

Jane Mc Gonigal is a games designer and games researcher. She has been making games online now for 10 years. She is the founder of Gameful and author of Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World

She makes games to challenge players "to tackle real-world problems at a planetary-scale":

Mc Gonigal says: "10 years of scientific research shows that playing video games is actually the most productive thing we can do."

Her goal for the next decade "is to try to make it as easy to save the world in real life as it to save the world in online games".

She has a plan for this: "convincing more people to spend more time playing bigger and better games"
