Video Gaming Towards a Better World

Some people think it’s possible that gaming can make the world a better place. And if that’s true then game sales might point to an inflection in gaming’s potential. Game designer Jane McGonigal believes games can change the world, for the better, and that game designers have a responsibility to do so.

In 2009, U.S. computer and video game sales hit $10.5 billion dollars. That dipped from a record $11.7 billion in 2008, likely due to the economic recession. With so much money being spent on games and so many people engaging in games regularly, it seems like the perfect opportunity for those interested in social change to make things happen.
