Games give better everything

After I wrote 'Gaming meets Business Software' I found an excellent presentation by Jane McGonigal on 'The Rise of the Happiness Brands'. In short it says that people just want to be happy and that happiness is the new capital. We are all in the happiness business and need happiness engineers.

About 20 percent in the presentation she mentions that Games work better, better instructions, feedback, community and emotion and creates the link to what people really want. Games are happiness engines, but are broken from reality. It's necessary to bridge the happiness gap between games and reality. Reality should be turned into games and consumers into players.

I guess I've to dust off the XBox 360 in my office...
