Gamification trends in education

Gamification is happening in many industries, but education is at the forefront. Games provide a natural environment for students to fail, learn, and try again, and teachers are increasingly using video games to teach core subjects such as math and reading. Some important examples include MinecraftEdu, a version of the game that teaches students math concepts and foreign languages, and SimCityEDU, another learning and assessment tool for middle school students that covers subjects such as English and math.

The integration of games and the metaverse

The metaverse is another important force driving the continued growth of video games. The metaverse refers to technology that allows people to become part of an interconnected digital world, an extension of the real world. People can interact, create items, and trade in this 3D “world” with virtual images through online games and applications. Research shows that more than 52% of American gamers believe that the metaverse can revolutionize the gaming industry. Although it will take some time to achieve truly immersive, seamless and realistic metaverse technology, its future impact on video games is worth looking forward to.

The rise of e-sports and live broadcast platforms

The rapid development of e-sports and game live broadcast platforms has also driven the growth of the gaming industry. As an emerging form of sports, e-sports has attracted a large number of viewers and investors, and the prize money and influence of the competition have increased year by year. Live broadcast platforms such as Twitch and YouTube Gaming allow players to watch game events and anchors’ game processes in real time.
