People often confuse what people learn from games with what they learn from either the game’s fiction (i.e. the symbols attached to game elements) or from its physics (i.e. the similarity of its world’s behaviour with that of reality). They rarely look at what gameplay offers. Fiction can be bettered covered in novels; physics by gameplayfree
simulations. Gameplay concerns high-order problem-solving (including of social problems), and it’s here where people should be looking for the effects of games.
