Hey guys! For my presentation I wanted to touch on a point in class that we learned about and that is McGonigal’s “epic win”. To me this is the most interesting thing we have learned thougth the
Before I even get into the epic win theory. I would like to give you guys a little backround information on McGonigal.
McGonigal’s full name is Jane McGonigal. Clck Here in order ot see a picture of Jane since I am having toruble ugloading a picture. It also has a short bio that i grabbed straight from her website.
She is a world famous video game designer. Along with that she has had a number of achievement in her life and here a just a few…
- PhD, game research, the University of California at Berkeley
- Named by Oprah Winfrey as one of the twenty most inspiring women in the world, O Magazine, 2010.
- Honored by Game Developer Magazineas one of the 50 people making the biggest impact in games
- The New York Times featured her as one of 10 scientists with the best vision for what’s coming next in 2011
Safe to say she has done very well for her self. Along with those amazing achievements, she also is a writer. She has recently writen the book, Reality is Broken: Why games make us better and how they can change the world. The book talks about how the world can benefit from bringing video games to real life.
Ok well with that backround information I want to get ot the point that this whole presentation is about….”epic win”.
What I found so interesting the idea of this epic win. An epic win is a feeling that you had no idea it was possible until you achieved something that you thought was impossible. The idea was so interesting. And with this epic win, Jane believe that if we are able to feel this all the time through the world not just in in video games, itll make the world a better place.
