I met Jane McGonigal today

She was one of the inventors of I Love Bees. She has some interesting ideas about games and gamers. She has a lot of respect for us. One of the most interesting is that gaming, when done in its proper proportion, may be as effective as a anti-depressant. Anyways, if you have any questions about her talk, or my conversation with her, ask. Before you ask: "Who is she?" She is a PhD who studies how games and gamers interact on a psychological and physical level. She worked on I Love Bees, which was an Alternate Reality Game that Bungie used for promoting Halo 2.

  • Go on, tell me more. For the next 30 seconds, I'll even pretend I care. I'm just kidding. Good for you. I wasn't involved in the internet in those days. [Edited on 10.08.2012 8:01 PM PDT]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] InvasionImminent I find it interesting, but I don't have many questions. But I do have one, do games make people over competitive or perhaps socially withdrawed? [/quote]This was asked. Actually, it makes them more goal oriented.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Raptorx7 Cool. What kind of questions did you ask her?[/quote]Mainly how they come up with ARG's and how to keep them relevant. Unfortunately she's moved on from that. She's doing a venture called Super Better, which is hard to explain.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] MyNameIsCharlie Well, this is disappointing. When she did ILB BNet went NUTS over the concept of ARG's. Posters then went nuts. You guys don't even find it the least bit interesting. Ah well. [/quote] That's the thing. She really isn't all that memorable. It's not like you met Hideo Kojima or Frank O'Connor.

  • Most people don't know what it was. I played Halo 2 extensively back then and I don't even fully understand what it was.
