21 billion hours of game play every week to solve the world’s most urgent problems – this is postulated by game designer Jane McGonigal in a talk on how video games can save the world. Listen to how she showcases her research to present a humorous look on how the seriousness of online gaming can be applied in real life. Our need to succeed, our drive to “save the day” – all the positive feelings we have when we play a game as well as our more noble intentions of winning can help us to become better versions of ourselves in the real world.
