try to make it as easy to save the world in real life as it is to save the world
in online games. Now, I have a plan for this, and it entails convincing more
people, including all of you, to spend more time playing bigger and better
games.”
What McGonigal is referring to is gamification, the use of game thinking
and game mechanics in non-game contexts to engage users in solving
problems. Gamification has been studied and applied in several domains,
