Fear to Games
This weekend I was watching a TED Talk by Philip Howard where he discusses his ideas about how our increasingly litigious society has altered our modern lives. I enjoyed the talk, and while watching I wondered whether the increasingly fearful world he paints benefits the gaming industry. If every aspect of our lives, from playgrounds, to schools, to running a business are increasingly locked down with second-guessing and fear, what would possibly be more freeing than jumping into a game and doing anything you want, free of fear's shackles?
