Labeling Games

Clark Quinn, Learnlets, Oct 18, 2007

I think most people dislike the term 'serious games' (this survey certainly seems to suggest it). But the favoured alternative, 'immersive learning', doesn't capture people's imagination - or attention. Me, I still say, call games 'games' and simulations 'simulations' and forget about trying to put one over on the guy in the corner office.
