Amy Jo Kim, PhD looks at how video games are changing, from the zero-sum, competitive games we’re all accustomed to, to something more “co-operative.” She explains why she sees the future of games is becoming co-operative, as it is proving to offer a more engaging and rewarding experience for the participants. Gaming is shifting from the “me” to the “we”. While many of the examples Amy Jo Kim shares are proper video games, her 7 Rules of Cooperative Game Design could be applied to the design of just about any social space.
