Abstract

The advantages of serious games are weighed against the disadvantages to discover if serious games would be a worthwhile investment and tool for educators and learners. The chance of success for the serious games industry is discussed and areas for future research identified. Our emphasis here is in education, although the consumers and users of serious games include all levels of government, the corporate world, non government agencies, the military, institutions of higher learning, health agencies and the general public. There are already a variety of serious games on the market, some having been as successful as the larger commercial games.
