COVID-19: Time to Take ‘Serious’ Games Seriously
The impact of gaming during COVID is not just anecdotal. The industry has grown by almost 20% in 2020 to a staggering $179 billion and is projected to hit nearly $218 billion by 2023.
The more interesting fact however, isn’t just the growth in the fun and entertainment segments of the video game industry, but also a rapid growth in the “serious” or educational segment, which now stands at about $4 billion and is projected to reach $11 billion by 2030.
For many years now, serious games have had growing impact in the healthcare, education and training space.
