MMORPG= Massively multiplayer online role-playing game
ARG= Alternate reality games
I have to admit that the first time I had ever heard of a MMORPG was on NCIS as they talked about it in an episode. I felt much like Gibbs and his vacant expression. I loved to read and watch the information about these two types of gaming. I actually play the 39 Clues. I was trying to find ways to connect more with my students and many were reading the series and told me about them. The books encourage the online gaming aspect and I played and really enjoyed it. I feel if we could do something like that for all books, we could take away the AR testing and have students play games about the books. It could relieve some of the students from their test anxieties.
I love the idea of the real life Pacman. That looks cool and I can see it really taking off as technology keeps changing and improving.
