Can a Game Change the World?

A nice review by that title on Fileplanet, a site dedicated to hard core gamers. Read the full version here.

Can games change the world? Yes they can. But not directly. It’s not as though playing PeaceMaker will make everyone drop their weapons and start hugging. But it does illuminate the news, and it gives you a much deeper understanding of what’s going on in the region. Raising awareness is a good start to finding a solution. If games like this were used in schools, it would help make problems in other parts of the world more real. And, maybe most important of all, it would get people talking. Hell, I just got a few hundred thousand hardcore gamers to think about Middle East peace. That’s something, right?
