Games have a higher calling?

by Jon on May 8, 2010

Bostinnovation just posted an interview with me which they called “Gaming has a Higher Calling.

Maybe I *am* a bit idealistic; I think games are a great art form–the art form of the 21st century–and I think that games can often be a force for good. I certainly believe that there’s a lot of unexplored space in the game universe–lots of game mechanics, stories and motivators are still virgin territory. I think games have the ability to probe the human condition in ways that nothing else can.

If you’re into this stuff, I think you’ll enjoy the interview. For the record, however, Disruptor Beam is focused on entertainment (not education or edutainment products) although we talked a bit about that market during the interview (I also think they were a bit overly generous with their compliments about my role in the Boston game community, but who am I to argue?!)

Thank you for reading this article. Please follow me on Twitter to hear more from me on innovation, games and entrepreneurship. If you'd like to learn how games can transform your business, also check out my book, Game On: Energize Your Business with Social Media Games.
