Things like depression and obesity are global challenges  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Compared with games, reality is disconnected  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) You can’t play the same game every day for years. New games are key.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) When we know our strengths, we’re more likely to use them  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) You can’t play the same game every day for years. New games are key  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Over time, the games we play can change how we think and what we’re capable of. And it’s easy to maximize the benefits so the changes are positive.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) It’s a bit counter-intuitive to think about the future in terms of the past. But...I’ve learned an important trick: to develop foresight, you need to practice hindsight. Technologies, cultures, and climates may change, but our basic human needs and desires - to survive, to care for our families, and to lead happy, purposeful lives - remain the same.’ p 5  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) I’m not a fan of simulations. Where, ‘Oh, we’ll go play a simulation of world peace and figure out how to make peace’ and then somehow magically that will get translated into the real world. No, that’s not the kind of games that I make  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Scientists have demonstrated that dramatic, positive changes can occur in our lives as a direct result of facing an extreme challenge - whether it’s coping with a serious illness, daring to quit smoking, or dealing with depression. Researchers call this ‘post-traumatic growth.’  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Although I’m perceived as very optimistic and upbeat, it comes out of being the opposite of that - feeling isolated or lonely, looking for meaning and the kinds of things that ease that suffering in life, and finding them in large-scale social interaction, like theater and games.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) We’ve been playing games since humanity had civilization - there is something primal about our desire and our ability to play games. It’s so deep-seated that it can bypass latter-day cultural norms and biases  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) A traumatic event doesn’t doom us to suffer indefinitely. Instead, we can use it as a springboard to unleash our best qualities and lead happier lives.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) We have to accept as a society that games are not escapist. They really do change us  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Over time, the games we play can change how we think and what we’re capable of. And it’s easy to maximize the benefits so the changes are positive  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Every game we play activates our brain, and it’s the same brain we have in real life as we have in the game  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) There is so much more knowledge than most people realize about how to maximize the benefits of play and minimize the potential harms  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) When parents or gamers ask me, ‘What’s the best game to play?’ I say that playing face-to-face is more beneficial than playing online.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) When we’re in game worlds, we become the best version of ourselves, the most likely to help at a moment’s notice, the most likely to stick with a problem as long at it takes, to get up after failure and try again.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) When we’re in game worlds, I believe that many of us become the best version of ourselves: the most likely to help at a moment’s notice. The most likely to stick with a problem as long as it takes. To get up after failure and try again.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Game developers know that people have more fun when they’re in large groups. They feel more fired up when the challenges are more epic.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Evidence shows that having even weak social connections in a stressful situation is really good for your health and your ability to handle that situation.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Every game designer should make one explicitly world-changing game. Lawyers do pro bono work, why can’t we?  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Surveys of thousands of gamers have shown that they’re more likely to play real music if they play a music videogame. So it’s an interesting relationship where the games aren’t replacing something we do in real life, they’re serving as a springboard to a goal we might have in real life, like learning to play an instrument.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) SuperBetter’ is fundamentally about a mind shift. It’s about claiming your power to be in charge of how you spend your time and energy, and focusing it on the things that matter the most to you. Focusing on things that will bring real happiness, real well-being.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) If you can manage to experience three positive emotions for every one negative emotion ¦ you dramatically improve your health and your ability to successfully tackle any problem you’re facing.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) It may have once been true that computer games encouraged us to interact more with machines than with each other. But if you still think of gamers as loners, then you’re not playing games.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) I ran through most of college and ran through most of grad school. When I was writing my dissertation for my Ph.D., it was literally the only hour of the day that I wasn’t working. It was nine months of torture, but I made sure I got out to run.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) I don’t want a gamer to feel like they have to commit their whole life to changing the world  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) Positive health means becoming whole-heartedly engaged with our own health care. It means not outsourcing our health to the health care system. It means getting rid of the fear and paralysis we too often feel, and instead cultivating a sense of agency.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes) For most people, an hour a day playing our favorite games will power up our ability to engage whole-heartedly with difficult challenges, strengthen our relationships with the people we care about most - while still letting us notice when it’s time to stop playing in virtual worlds and bring our gamer strengths back to real life.  (Jane McGonigal Quotes)
