Social Purpose – Games Research 10

In this TED blog post, Kate Torgovnick May writes about ten different social purpose games and what they hope to achieve in their games. Gaming and the use of narrative can cause people to understand issues in an much more interactive manner as compared to the reading them on a page.

For instance,  Budget Hero tasks the player with balancing the country’s economy. It teaches the player in a graphical and interactive manner on how changes can effect the economy  and how even simple changes can cause a country to go bankrupt.
