A Realidade em Jogo: Por que os games nos tornam melhores e como eles podem mudar o mundo

Nesse fascinante estudo sobre jogos de videogame e comportamento humano, Jane McGonigal defende uma controversa teoria: a de que os games atraem cada vez mais pessoas porque fazem um trabalho melhor do que a realidade para atender aos verdadeiros desejos da humanidade. Escrito tanto para jogadores quanto para não jogadores, A Realidade em Jogo mostra que o uso desses jogos não precisa ser voltado apenas para o entretenimento solitário e que o futuro pertence àqueles que conseguem entender, criar e jogar videogames.

    I kept reading this book hoping McGonigal would turn out to have written something else. It's all about how and why structured games are so compelling and powerful that we can (and should) use them to...

    This author is an anarchist and doesn't even know it. She's a populist and doesn't even know it. And she's very close to being bat-shit crazy, but gets a pass because of her mention of Herodotus. You ...

    I find all the negative reviews that are listed for this book to be relatively amusing. It seems glaringly obvious from those who are providing these reviews that they are not part of the 176 million ...

    It’s almost painfully clear that Jane McGonigal has never written anything for a wide audience before. It isn’t that her book is poorly written or that it doesn’t make its point well, but somewh...

    I went into this book with a high degree of cynicism. I think video games are fine in moderation but…video games can change the world? Really? In the book she describes a game put on by the Guardian...
