jeux sérieux

Definition:

A serious game or applied game is a game designed for a primary purpose other than pure entertainment.[1] The “serious” adjective is generally prepended to refer to video games used by industries like defense, education, scientific exploration, health care, emergency management, city planning, engineering, and politics.[2] Serious games are a subgenre of serious storytelling, where storytelling is applied “outside the context of entertainment, where the narration progresses as a sequence of patterns impressive in quality … and is part of a thoughtful progress”.[3] The idea shares aspects with simulation generally, including flight simulation and medical simulation, but explicitly emphasizes the added pedagogical value of fun and competition.
