Sed to train the US Military to model global pandemics and to campaign against human rights abuses in AfricaGame worlds are creating a new science of mass engagement that is starting to transform our understanding of economics business and communications Whether you like video games or loathe them Fun Inc will show you that you cannot ignore the I was hoping this book would answer many uestions I have regarding why people can spend their lives glued to a screen playing endless games But since the book was written by a self professed gamer he clearly didn t feel the need to explain that There was a lot of information about various games and how they work the origins of electronic gaming and developments in gaming that have affected other fields The majority of the book was spent justifying the usefulness and the potential social and scientific advancement of the industry and the people who made it to make stuff that will eventually make our lives better How gaming really benefits our time on this planet remains a mystery to me I still don t get it
